Why not celebrate with one of the most loved DIY treatments of all…. grain sack projects! Who doesn’t love the vintage vibe a good grain sack design gives off? As luck would have it, you don’t have to purchase expensive authentic grain sacks to get the look. Here’s proof…

  1. Happy Friday Night! I think I want to pin every single grain sack project. I have yet to try my hand at a grain sack anything! Love the theme this week!

  2. Hello Donna,
    I’m Cindy from I LOVE your site! Congratulations on the 200TH, WOW!!!
    I also have a passion for repurposing junk. I hope you will ckeck out this awesome Potting Table and Tray which my husband created for me, made from pallets (#73 Home Decor) We have an 100 year old Victorian Farmhouse we have been restoring for over 10 years in Texas, when looking at our before photos, you good say we are repurposing our JunkHouse! Transforming it into Beauty, one room at a time. Have been following you, and enjoy everything you do here, thanks for hosting, have a wonderful week!

  3. LOVE grain sacks…but I realize now I’ve never made anything that I can share…only bought things others have made. I’d better get on that!
    I guess I’m having my own little “spool party” up in Home Décor this week…haha 🙂 Thanks Donna…happy weekend! Laurel

  4. Wow, great features, specially the grain sack upholstered chairs. Thanks for the cool, great party! Enjoy your last days of Summer fun.

  5. Oh, Donna< I love all the grain sack things. I still want one like you make out of sand bags. But if you remember, here a sand bag is a plastic bag with a draw string. Yuck! Not much of a pillow making material. Could you possible send me the name of the store that you get yours from and maybe I could order some from them. Got my fingers crossed. Thanks for the great post as always.
