I’ve been drawn to the lovely simplicity of grain sacks in decor lately. Perhaps it’s because we’re house hunting and with each house I see, I envision different decorating styles.
Another reason I love grain sack is because there are easy ways to recreate the look with a little tape and some paint. My kind of projects!
Musings from a French Cottage
Kathleen shows another way to create grain sack for pillows here.
Keeping with the grain sack style, you can find this Dresser Makeover at Musings From a French Cottage too.
This sensational bedding was hand sewn by the talented Maria at Rusty Hinge. So dreamy.
This sweet rocking chair that Kathryn at Ugly Duckling Transformations painted was inspired by the dresser up above. Awesomeness.
This table from City Farmhouse is a great showpiece of grain sack style. Three subtle lines make a world of difference.
How about a grainsack banner? This is so clever. Head over to Knick of Time to see how she made it.
Grainsack buckets? Why not! It’s a great way to take the influence to another texture. And these buckets are just so cool. Find out how to paint them at Gypsy Flea Market.
I know Christmas is a ways off but I couldn’t resist this grainsack inspired tree on Amy’s mantel at AttaGirlSays. Another example of how to add this style to a room in different ways.
Or how about these sweet little grainsack Christmas stockings at Keeping it Cozy? Darling touch.
By the way, those sweet stockings were made by Ann of Sutton Place. Ann is . . . well, she’s just incredible. You can find all kinds of vintage linen projects at Sutton Place that Ann sews herself. Her workmanship is beyond compare.
Lucky for us she has an Etsy Shop too where we can purchase her beautiful grain sack pieces.
Another idea is this little grain sack to cover a topiary pot. Brings the french countryside right in, doesn’t it?
What a perfect way to wrap a bottle of wine, in a grainsack bag.
There you have 18 different grain sack projects! What do you think? Are you a fan of grain sack? I’m thinking the vintage red would be a great holiday theme, wouldn’t it?
