For just a few dollars you can make a fun American Flag table or coffee table. Pick up an old wooden pallet (often for free behind businesses...make sure to ask if it's OK to take one) or purchase one off eBay, Craigslist and some local lumberyards sell them.
Pick up some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Emperor's Silk, Napoleonic and Old White. I get mine from Shades of Amber in Monument CO (where I also work, so pop in and say hello). http://www.shadesofamber.net You can order an awesome star stencil from Royal Design Stencils http://www.royaldesignstudio.com/products/polka-star-stencil
You can make something that is super quick and easy and only takes a few minutes to paint! See what www.mom4real.com did! How adorable is this!

Happy 4th ya'll!
