Between Flag Day and the Fourth of July, there are plenty of reasons to decorate our homes and porches in red, white and blue! But, what about the rest of the year? 

How can you incorporate these patriotic furniture makeovers all year round? 

Here are three ideas!

Idea #1: Create An Americana Theme For A Child's Bedroom

Furniture painted in red, white or blue (or a combination) makes for easy decor and a feeling of pride!

Search for sheet setsstar pillows and a flag rug to complete the look!

Idea #2: Decorate Your Home With Star and Stripe Neutral Flair 

Consider this "patriotic spin off" idea that allows you to interchange holiday decor easily with these natural home accents. 

For example, this white textured striped throw pillow covers and these red and white kaleidoscope pillow covers have some stripe and red elements and are totally cute all on their own! 

Pair them with some neutral metal stars for patriotic elements that don't scream the 4th of July.

Idea #3: Select a Solid Color as Your Home Decorating Theme

Decorating with elements of blue or red in a room can easily compliment any patriotic show stopping furniture piece year round... (See Furniture Makeover #3!)

... And there are some show stopping furniture makeovers coming up so let's get started because I can't wait for you to see them!


These furniture artists, furniture painters and talented DIY-ers have crafted some pretty amazing furniture transformations celebrating all things red, white & blue!

 #1 Patriotic Table Makeover

This Patriotic Table Makeover is a stunner. This small painted table is the perfect size for serving 4th of July party food and drinks at a patio party. Stenciling painted furniture is an easy way to get charm into a furniture design and these stars did just the trick!

#2 Flag Dresser Makeover

I LOVE this faded interpretation of a flag on this provincial style dresser. It almost looks like the flag is waving with all it's curves! Using white furniture paint as her base made this painted dresser project go quickly and easily!

I LOVE LOVE this painted blue mirror! This mirror makeover is a great example of how you can create a bold statement piece in a room around one solid paint color.

Around Memorial Day or the Fourth of July it would be easy to add a few patriotic decorations near this mirror to pull off a complete patriotic vignette.

  1. Great round-up Carrie. I'm visiting them all. Thanks for including mine!

    1. Thank you for contributing! There's so many gorgeous red, white and blue makeovers to see!

  2. I saw a round navy table a few months ago with a flag design on top. It was on a blog and had a link to the stencils. I clicked on the link to order the stencils. I am now ready to paint my table and I can no longer find it. I remember looking at your blog post the same day. Do you have any idea where I could find this table?

    1. I'm sorry, I don't know. That's a bummer! I do offer some stencil ideas and links within this blog post. Did you get a chance to look through them? I think there are some flag stencils listed!
