Burlap Coffee Sacks...Rock

I am finding out that burlap coffee sacks...ROCK!!! Every time, I make something with them for my booths, they fly right out the door. I have used them to cover chair seats, made pillows with them and have framed them in large frames as artwork. I love making things that I like to have in my own home..it's a lot more fun that way. Let's just take a little survey here today. Do you own anything that involves burlap coffee sacks?                        
                                         Blessings,

I hadn't heard of these until I started blogging last year. I am not sure if they are such a 'big' thing over here, I haven't seen any evidence of them in shops. I do like the look of them though. I particularly like your seat covers.

Raising my hand...own and love burlap bags! Love your framed piece!

Roxanne Reinhart said...

I do not own anything made of burlap or "coffee sacks". But I love everything I see on here and on blogland in general. LOVE it, the chair, the pillow and the art work. Very cool.

Rani @ La Maison Jolie said...

I love them, especially the framed coffee sack! I would love to make one but I'm not sure where I could find coffee sacks in melbourne. Xx

Inspire Me Heather said...

They all look great! They are so hard to find here too, one of these days though...

Blondie's Journal said...

I love these but have never come across one. I need to visit your shop!

XO,

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

oooh love that first chair! the color on it is awesome!

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

I have a big framed one on the top of the stairs. I love it on that chair! It makes a cute accent. I don't think I would like it on a larger chair that is used a lot. Since we're in shorts most of the time I think it would be itchy!

Cynthia said...

I love the chair and the pillow is a nice accent piece. Very clever and great job!!

I do not own anything now, but would love to have something made from a burlap coffee sack. They are so unique and have so much character!

Linda I just received my shipment of coffee bags yesterday! My first shock was how large they are! We're planning on some upholstery progects also, your chair is gorgeous by the way! I also my sell some fully in tact in my booth for fun, who knows. We've got a couple footstools in the makiing, tami

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Flea Market Makeovers said...

I have some things in my booth, but not in my home. They are cool looking and very of the moment...love them.

Marsha said...

I don't have any burlap--but wouldn't mind if the opportunity presented itself.

SheilaG @ Plum Doodles said...

I love the burlap with the blue stripe- I haven't seen coffee sacks with such pretty color. I don't have anything burlap in my home and always wonder where people find the coffee sacks.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

OMG Linda I LOVE that chair!! I don't have any burlap coffee sacks but I have plenty of plain burlap, love that stuff!

Bliss said...

Thinking I'm soon gonna have a coffee sack in a frame like yours. Love that and bonus... no sewing!

Love that chair and that just touch of blue..is wonderful

Carrie@comfortablycarriedaway said...

I have a couple burlap coffee sack pillows in my booth at the shop and am in the process of upholstering a setee with some as we speak. Here in the NW there are a lot of coffee roasters around. I was lucky enough to stumble upon a source while buying a craigslist chair; turns out he is the coffee roaster for Fred Meyer/Kroger. Needless to say,score! I am buying them by the case now. Thanks for sharing!

I love the chair and the frame. I use burlap a lot and have made many things with it.

Laurel@chippingwithcharm said...

LOVE 'em!! You have some great ones...love the chair :) I do have coffee sacks...but right now they are folded in a neat little pile in my basement. Better get busy huh? Laurel

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

I love them Linda, but they are HARD to find at a good price down my way...I always have my eyes open for them...

LOVE the chair!

All of your projects are just gorgeous. I received my first order of coffee sacks last week, but not one as pretty as yours with the pretty turquoise strip. So far I've covered a few chairs and made a memo board with them. Thanks for sharing your beautiful things! Robin

The Polka Dot Closet said...

I have a stack of coffee sacks in the garage and I forget about using them....I won't now! Thank you for some great ideas!

Pamela said...

That chair is awesome Linda! I have not been lucky enough to get my hands on any yet.

Stephanie said...

LOVE, LOVE the chair!

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

No, but I'd sure love to! I love what you did with yours, especially the framed one. Where do you get them? Or that may be a shop secret. I was wondering if they were readily available or if you have to kind of hunt for them.

Half Baked said...

I love burlap too. That chair is gorgeous!

At The Picket Fence said...

I love all of the ways you have used them Linda! No wonder they are flying right out of your shop! :-)

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

I'd love a whole set of chairs like that. Love the blue stripe. But nope. I got no coffee sacks!

An Island Mom said...

Don't have any burlap-sacked furniture or decor, I'm now sorry to report. Great idea!

Mrs. Sutton said...

They're gorgeous, but rare to find in the UK. I have fallen in love with them, since seeing them all over blogland. How clever that you have covered them yourself - SO inspiring. Delighted to have found your blog. x

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

ADORABLE!!! You've got some great graphics on your coffee sacks. Love that stripe! Makes me think I may need to paint one on some of the bags I have! :) So far I haven't kept anything I've made with coffee sacks. I need to 'cause I love them!

Nook and Cranny said...

I do love burlap bags myself, or anything burlap for that matter.
I have 4-5 bags that I just lay over doorways in my home. JoAnn's Fabric store sells rolls of burlap, approx 5-6 wide (in floral dept)that I used as garland on holiday tree and large bows on antique sleigh, etc. I am sure the possibilities are endless. If anything you can use this as decoration for your shop!!
Just a few thoughts.

Hi. Great chair. I also like the framed black type. If you're interested in a project I recently did w/ coffee sacks, head over to my blog. and scroll down the a recent post called "Ottoman." I know, not a very creative title but I wasn't feeling very creative that day. Thanks!

THE FARMHOUSE PORCH said...

Nice! I love the patina and the burlap.

Claudine from CondensedLoveHome said...

Hi, Linda!!
A friend and I did a basic upholstery class this year and she chose burlap for our projects! We covered two chairs and they both turned out beautiful! She gave me the leftovers and I made a wreath t put on my door, too!
Also I bought 4 coffee sacks at the Habitat for Humanity store, for $1 each!!! I love your frame!!!

Imageremix said...

I can never find any around here! I have an old step stool type chair that I got for $1.00 and I'd love to redo the seat with that or a sugar or flour sack. The search continues. Thanks for posting these beauties. They remind me to keep my hopes up!
