Sack It To ‘Em

I use my burlap sacks as camouflage. 
to hide
Here in the laundry room, I have a little shelf that houses supplies but is pretty and screened off with my handy dandy burlap sack hung with a tension rod:
home 053 home 054
home 055
In my pantry I have it just slung over a shelf area (again hiding the not so pretty stuff that happens in life)
home 056
home 002
across from my fireplace – I have a chair that was my grandparents…I love the lines of it…..
here I’ve just stuffed the back cushion into a burlap sack and called it a day.
no sewing involved whatsoever and
I just love it.

I’m always on the hunt for more burlap or grain sacks…there will always be a place and use for them here.

Chat soon -

house of smith, keeping it simple and shabby chic cottage are both having giveaways for a silhouette machine - yikes!  don't go there and enter the content though (just kidding - sort of! tee hee)  because I HAVE to win!


  1. I love the graphics on the one on the chair. It has great colors on it. And what a great idea, no sew is always the best way :)

  2. Cool backdrop! I just love the rustic feel grain sacks offer an area, especially on that chair.


  3. Great the designs on those old burlap sacks. I am thinking of using them as cafe curtains in my kitchen.



  4. Love the burlap sack on the back of your chair...great idea!

  5. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my foot stool.
    I love how you've used the burlap sacks to screen off certain areas of your house and I like the idea of using the tension rod.
    I read some of your other posts and your work space area looks great. You have all of the same type of storage containers I do....old wood boxes...metal containers. I really love that screen!!
    Always nice to meet someone else who appreciates "junk"!!

  6. I love these sacks too. I don't have any of my own though - I'm feeling a bit jealous of your collection!!


  7. The possibilities for these sacks are seemingly endless, no?!Clever, clever.Thanks for sharing.

  8. What a great way to use these sacks!

  9. Thanks for sharing, its pretty cool. This year I'm looking forward to take a break and enjoy nature as I go for vacation, well maybe after I find some Land in Texas. Anyway I really like your blog and i really appreciate the excellent quality content you are posting here.

  10. Awesome! Where do you find all these cool grain sacks?
