Decorating with Burlap!~Newbie party Started....

It is pretty apparent that Burlap and grain sacks are all the rage in decorating, well one of them anyway!
They add texture, color and visual interest to just about any room. My Mom sent me this link today, and I thought it was great to share with my friends.
I did a little project of my own as well with some FREE burlap bags my FIL gave me.
I mentioned to you, that they are rice bags,and that you should check with your local grocer to see if they would throw you a few.  I thought about coffee sacks as well...it certainly does not hurt to ask, and FREE is always a good.
Not Your Momma’s Gunny Sack Anymore…BURLAP
by: Karen Olsen
Burlap is making an appearance all over the home décor scene. It’s rustic, textural and charming all at the same time.
Here are a few ideas on how to use burlap in your home.

Window Treatments/ Shower Curtain. A natural or dark-colored burlap drapery over a white sheer curtain provides a rich contrast. The open weave allows the light to shine through.

What a neat idea this is..so easy too, just buy some cheap canvas squares, wrap and tack the back.

Very pretty!

Ottoman


Runner

Lamp Shades
Sources where the pics where copied: Living Better at age 50+

And now onto my own new Burlap project.....


 I love the vibrant colors in these rice bags...





 These were the before if you recall.  

I used Annie Sloan chalk paint, painted and distressed them.

For A FREE project, I think they turned out pretty good.
I have plenty more where these came from, so who knows what else I will come up with next.
ENJOY the newbie party!

Debbie, I love the way the stools turned out. How cute. I saw a lady at Scott's Antique Market selling the coffee bags for $30 a piece and she probably got them for free. What a nice profit.

Hi Debbie Dear! I loved seeing all of the sacks and burlap projects! I still haven't done anything with them. You're so clever and your little stool seats look great and they even have the colors of your granite in them! You're the best.
Be a sweetie,

I have been wanting to make one of those runners and just keep putting it at the end of my list. I think your stools are wonderful and free is ALWAYS good. My days at your Newbie Party are over and I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm really sad. I will miss it. Thanks for hosting every week...it's a wonderful opportunity for Newbies. Have a good week.

Debbie
I'm not much into burlap, but I liked your stools. Probably because of the color in them.
Just wondering, remember I'm a newbie, what did you mean by "word verification"?
I didn't want to join the newbie party again if I wasn't following the right guidelines!

Love the burlap headboard and runner. Then I get to your stools.Love them. How do you do that?? You go to NYC and cover stools. I go on a road trip and my tongue is hanging out. Oh, You are younger ( and prettier). I am sure that's it.
We have a local news reporter that looks like you so I get to visit with you each evening news broadcast. I am going to figure out a way to send her pic to you.
