Coffee Bean Sacks

I love decorating with things I find at the antique mall.  Among my many purchases are two old coffee bean sacks.  The first one I found just happened to be an old Starbucks sack.  It was in such good condition that I framed it and hung it on my wall.

I had trouble finding a frame the size I wanted so I have my hubby to thank for this one.

The second coffee bean sack I found was not in as good of condition so I cut the edges off, folded it in half and put it on my buffet like a table runner, printing showing of course.

I also can't seem to get enough of pillows made out of old grain sacks or made to look like they are made out of old grain sacks.

The pillow on the chair above and the pillows on the couch below I purchased from Restoration Hardware.

The pillow below I purchased from Etsy.  Isn't it cute!?!

Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit.   I love hearing from all of you and appreciate all your comments.

  12. For a coffee bag that wasn't in such great shape, it sure looks fabulous!!!! Purrsonally, I think burlap and typography is so classic without being stuffy! Kudos on a wonderful remake!
