4th of July Kids Craft: American Flag Table Runner







Want to have some fun and make a super easy 4th of July table runner with your kids!? This little project was so quick and easy yet makes a big statement on your Holiday weekend tablescape! 

SUPPLIES
-Craft Paper
-White Paint (I used a spray Primer bc it's my favorite and dries so fast)
-Blue paint
-Red paint
-Sponge brush/paint brush
-Star stencil





The first thing I did to prep for the project was roll out my length for the runner with craft paper.  I then took it outside and lightly sprayed it with my white primer.  This makes the stripes part of the flag much easier and keeps the paper more stiff.  After it dried (in literally 10 minutes) I sectioned off the blue of the flag.  
My daughter then took some red paint and drew on the stripes.  They definitely don't need to be perfect, I personally think it adds to the cuteness factor that our flags stripes tend to slope downward. 




After she finished the stripes we took our star stencil and sponge brush.  I helped hold down the stencil as she blotted the shape.





Let it all dry and TaDA! The cutest 4th of July table runner you could ever imagine!

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas Blog Hop

I am so excited to share that Sunny Chic Home is a part of the 2017 Treetopia Christmas Blog Hop!
This years theme couldn't be more perfect... Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas!
 Treetopia wants to help you add some sparkle to your holidays by celebrating a glitz and glam Christmas with the Treetopia bloggers!
I am kicking off the season with a very Merry CHIC-Mas themed master bedroom! Make sure to check out the four other fabulous bloggers this week!

You all know by now I love me some Christmas spirit in the bedroom and in our new home the master is light and bright so I wanted to continue that in the holiday decor.
  I chose to use the GORGeous Treetopia 7' prelit Tinkerbell Silver Christmas Tree. The silvery tinsel tips add such a magical touch and the width of 47" make the tree such a great piece and perfect CHIC-mas addition to any room.

EASY Master Closet Makeover...I'm talking NO tools needed!

As most of you know a couple weeks ago I got so sick and tired of my crazy disaster of a master closet I decided to take on organizing it....however not just cleaning it out.  I needed to come up with a better closet system for my husband and I.  
Originally I thought "Hey, I'll take down all these rods and buy a closet system that drills into the wall...and it will be so fun and easy!"
HAHAHAHAHA.  Yeaaaaaa right! Those bad boys are expensive and who is kidding who here I can barely use a drill.  SO then I decided to look for simple closet systems that would solve the issues we had in our closet.  Which were:
1. Shoes 2. Purses 3. Hats
These three issues were what really dragged it down and made it look like a hurricane swept through.  You can take a look at the "BEFORE" pics below as long as you promise not to judge!  I originally told you all I wasn't going to share my "befores" but a lot of you got a little angry at me..and you were totally right.  …
