Happy 4th of July

When a local Borders book store was going out of business a while back, they started selling off everything from books and movies to light fixtures and furniture.  I grabbed several of these sign holders in different shapes and sizes knowing that I'd do something with them eventually.  

I needed a little 4th of July inspiration.

A couple coats of paint brightened up the drab gray finish.  I cut off a piece of jute webbing from an old roll I found at a yard sale last year, stenciled it up, and dropped it right in the frame. This old webbing is much stiffer than the new stuff which makes it stand up in the frame without sagging.

The back side.
Don't miss the fireworks show.

Why stop with just one sign?  The other frame will be a perfect table top booth sign when I go to the antique shows.  Now I think I'm going to have to stencil a piece of jute webbing for every occasion. 

~~~ Wishing everyone a happy and safe 4th of July celebration. ~~~
