French Grain Sack Chair

Unfortunately, I do not have a before picture of this chair.  I bought it last summer off of Craig’s List and never snapped a picture of it.  It had a wood frame and lavender plaid upholstery.  It was in great condition, but it just wasn’t “me”, so I gave it to Ruthie, my upholsterer to let her work her magic.  I also gave her two antique grain sacks to use as the fabric.  I can hardly take credit for how amazing this chair looks.  My contribution was a naked chair frame painted white with some grain sacks and Ruthie did the rest.

 

I love her choices on the position of the grain sacks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My *plan* was to sell it, but I am so in love with it that it’s not leaving my house.  Ever.  Well, I guess I shouldn’t say that, because I do often change my mind about furniture.  Well, I’m at least keeping it for a while, but I will do more chairs in this style to sell.

Today, I placed an order for the first round of Miss Mustard Seed t-shirts!  They are going to be a heathered charcoal gray with white writing.  I went with a higher quality, traditional style t-shirt made by Champion.  It has a nice stretch to it and should work well for almost all body types.  They will be $12/each and I am planning to sell them at the Lucketts fair and I will make them available for order online as well.  I need to get my ducks in a row before I can do that, though, so I’m not sitting in my basement packing t-shirts all day!

  1. Hello Marian,

    Quick question…when using old fabric for projects, do you treat with any product to resist stains?
    Scotch Guard?

    Thanks,
    Linda
