Well, I have officially jumped on the french grain sack band wagon! I'm in love with my newest treasure. And I want more, lots more!
I introduce to you my first vintage grain sack now being used as a giant pillow on my sofa............
I love the subtle texture it has and the soft blue color of the stripes. While out shopping, I discovered so many varieties of these grain sacks that I now know I want to start collecting them. Does that ever happen to you? I've always loved them, but never had one in my home before. I now know it is something that was missing all along.
In an effort to keep things streamlined in my family room, I decided to remove the checked table cloth from my round table next to the sofa.
I painted it this soft shade of blue (which I thought would be more grey) but it turned out to be a happy accident. Ha!
I didn't want every piece of furniture to be the exact same color anyway, so this adds a bit of color and interest.
I found this old worn galvanized tub to fill with white flowers on my coffee table too. I decided to wrap some burlap ribbon around it for interest.
And I changed out the pillows in my white chairs so they wouldn't clash with my grain sack pillow on the sofa. It should be the star! Ha!
It seems there is no shortage of grain sacks around here. I prefer the blue and white ones though. I will have to take my time as they are a bit pricey. But, now I have something to look for!
On another note, I've been watching the news and keeping up with the terrible "super storm" as it has been called. I hope that everyone in its path has taken shelter and will come out through it safely. This is history in the making, I hear!
Until next time...........
Thanks for stopping by!
