Vintage Grain Sack and Other Changes

Hello everyone!

I'm always on the hunt for more vintage blue striped grain sacks.  I found this one for a very low price at an antique store.  


It has just a little spot behind one of the embroidered letters and a tiny amount of small rust spots further down, but other than that, it's in great condition!  

I draped it over the back of this chair in my family room.


I  decided to move my wicker trunk (from Ikea) beside my sofa.  It makes a nice side table.  
I also changed my lamp in here to this one.  I missed having this burlap shade in here.  The lamp base is from Better Homes and Gardens and has the same weathered wood look as the floor lamp on the opposite side of the room.




By the way, my blue striped pouf swapped places with the trunk and is now in front of the fireplace.  


I like that this is shorter and not hiding the fireplace as much.

Well, just one more to go.  See you soon!

Thanks for stopping by.

The grain sack is so pretty and looks great on the back of the chair...I never would have thought of that and it's gets to be seen! The wicker side table is cute, too, as is the lamp.

I've never seen your poof before. I love it! It's perfect in front of your fireplace. Great changes!

XO,
Jane

I have two vintage grain sacks that I got at a thrift store...Until I started following you blog, I didn't even know what they were. I paid very little, and I'm thinking they didn't know how special they were. I just knew I loved the sacks with the blue strips. Thanks for giving me so much information...Love learning from you.

It all looks lovely!! I search and search each and every one of your photos and have YET to find 'stuff!' You know, TRUE 'debris!' The odd thing sitting out on a table that someone dropped there. I guess I just have so much STUFF!!! Your home is like a balm for the eyes.....peaceful, clean, harmonious. I love my every visit!!

I love the look of a grain sack draped over the back of your chair. And the wicker trunk caught my eye as well. Perfect spot for a bit of a change!!

The grain sacks are beautiful, and I really like the wicker trunk. You would never guess that it is new.

The grain sack is a great addition to your chair, and I really like the the wicker chest as a table. The pouf does look great in front of the fireplace. All so pretty!
