If you are anything like me, you love country farmhouse decor. So, when you have a plain jane stool in your bedroom, you need to do something about it. I covered a stool with a grain sack! This is like the perfect addition to your country farmhouse decor. It is an easy project and it has a BIG impact in any room. What else can you cover with a grain sack? Well, I have made farmhouse pillows as well. I am sure you can come up with even more great ideas that will look great in your farmhouse style home. For now, read on to see how I used my grain sack to do some upholstery.
Where to Get a Grain Sack
I bought the feed sack at a flea market months ago. Keep your eyes open for potential sacks when you go to thrift stores and flea markets. You can also shop etsy in a pinch. I like to keep a few on hand for projects like this so I look for a bargain. Then when I find a gorgeous example, I just put it in my stash!
How to Do Grain Sack Upholstery
My little grain sack stool goes with my dresser in my bedroom.
- To do your own grain sack upholstery, first, you will need to cut the sack to size. Remember to keep all of your scraps for other projects, however.
- Then remove the seat from the stool. How to do this depends on the stool itself. Mine was held in place with a few screws.
- Then wrap the grain sack around your seat and secure in the back. You can use a staple gun or an industrial adhesive for this step.
- Secure the seat back into place on your stool.
Literally a 10-minute project with gorgeous results! And the grain sack was like $8 at the flea market! What a steal right? The perfect country farmhouse decor project on a budget.
The bonus is I have the entire back of the feed sack left! It only has stripes but it is still gorgeous! I can’t wait to dive into another project!
