Grain Sack Bench

Do you remember this bench I redid in March? Well I had two others waiting for a makeover and finally had time to finish one. If you follow me on facebook, then you know I recently purchased 22 lbs. of grain sacks for projects such as this.

After going through my pile of grain sacks..... 

The bench went from this



To this







If I had room for it in my house I would have kept it for myself! The grain sack was perfectly worn and soft and I love the typography!

I'm linking to the parties listed HERE and to:

  8. Hello Melissa
    I spied your lovely bench transformation on Tuesday's Treasures link party. I am in love with grain sacks and coffee bean burlap sacks. It's so versatile, vintage and modern all at the same time! Now a follower, and hope you will come by altered-artworks.blogspot.com and say hi!
