Grain Sack Chair

This idea of covering up an armchair with a grain sack has been gnawing my mind for a while now. My husband and I have this old and green chair. We bought it a long time ago. It was found by an accident from a vintage store. But I guess it was one of those things you knew it right away that you have to have it. It's from the 40's. I like the shape of it, but the color, green, doesn't startle me anymore.

The idea of using a grain sack as a cover has been in my mind for a long time. I found some grain sacks from the flea market about a year ago. From those I made two pillows.
It's hard to find soft and linen like grain sacks around here. It's easier to find jute like grain sacks. Jute is a bit hard fabric to use in a chair and you always get some fuzz from it to your clothes.

Here is some pictures that I picked up from Google when I was browsing around looking for ideas and things that have been made from a grain sack.

I have to search even harder, so I have a chance to bump into some grain sacks. I was reading all the beautiful blogs you all have and I was so lucky to find Gracie's beautiful blog and her awesome Great American Grain Sack Giveaway. I hope you all check it out. Maybe you get lucky and get this.

Well I wish you all a great weekend!

Tomorrow me and my husband have a baptism to our godson. Excting!!!

    These grain sack pics are TO DIE FOR....I bought a couple while I was in the US recently....Even though they've faded somewhat they're actually quite colourful compared to the neutral ones you've shown here & they're soooooo SOFT....NOT fuzzy like the jute ones you wrote about....yeckkkkk....

    I would LOVE to see pics of your chair when you get around to recovering it....Don't forget to show us what you end up doing....!!
