Cushy Coffee

Cushy Coffee
On the very unlikely chance you decided to invest in french grain sacks a few years ago, you are probably a little richer today, because those things are suddenly a hot commodity. Who knew? Maybe I’ll start storing tumbleweeds or something in my garage just in case it becomes super popular to decorate with them.

Clare loved the look but not the price of the french grain sack trend, so she improvised with the next best thing. Coffee sacks! Hey, maybe THAT’S the next big thing! I bet they smell really good.

    I gotta hang out with Clare. In addition to a cool chair, she has a STOCKED liquor cabinet. 😉

    I am always surprised when I see people using coffee burlap sacks for upholstry. My husband works as a coffee roaster and those sacks look great, but are incredibly scratchy and itchy. Also, since they hold green beans, not roasted ones, they don’t smell like coffee.

    Cute and shabby, it’s a much more interesting decor accent than the original!
