I moved into this apartment in June and I've had a lot of fun decorating it but there was one wall that I just couldn't figure out. This wall behind my TV was driving me crazy. I thought about hanging some framed prints, putting up shelves, etc. Then, I saw an image in Pinterest that I loved and it dawned on me... I needed a flag!
I went to the Long Beach Antique Swap Meet yesterday, found two crates and the perfect American flag and voilà! The wall is finished! I just couldn't wait to share it with you guys... clearly, considering I did this about 5 minutes ago.
Also, I'd like to mention something I discovered recently. I found this post from last month via A Cup of Jo and read each and every comment. I can't believe some of the views people have about displaying American flags. I can understand if you think it's tacky (not that I care) but when people argue that it screams conservative or say that it's weird and unsettling, I'm shocked. Here's the thing... I'm American. I was born and raised here and I'm grateful for that. Lastly, it's important to remember that you can love your country without having to love your government. There's a lot wrong with this country but there is a lot to love too. I simply prefer to focus on the latter.
