You’ll see them paired with grain sack throws, and other vintage pieces, too.

I love the turquoise stripe in them. Turquoise and stripes… a perfect combination that makes me feel happy 🙂

Even draping a grain sack just the way it is makes a statement.

Honestly, what’s left to do?

I like the idea of grain sack placemats.

I think they would wash up nicely…

And pair well with a bottle of wine!

Notice how the grain sacks are placed differently on each seat? I think that’s a great touch.

Do you have anything made from repurposed European grain sacks? I don’t, but sure would like to! Hmmm… guess I’ll add another thing to my DIY wish list 😉
