Another use for antique grainsacks

Grainsacks are all over the place and their nubbly worn texture fits into so many different spaces. They are mostly used for pillows and upholstery (oh one day)
Since I didn't have the itch for sewing that particular day and I wanted an update for my upstairs hallway, a table skirt came to mind. Skirt sounds girly, and I don't think it appears like that. See for yourself.






fall decor in all its rustic splendor.






this leather chair has the most beautiful color on the back and seat but since it is also our cat Oliver's favorite sleeping spot where he thinks stretching requires claws it has a furry brown sheepskin seat.


Do you have any interesting ideas for grainsacks?

Have a good day

  1. Really great idea for them! I still have some sitting around from last summer and I would love to do a skirt or table runner with them. Thanks for sharing!
