Repurpose old grain sacks with these 16 fabulous ideas!

Whether it's an old washboard turned memo board or vintage book pages turned wreath; I love when people find ways to refurbish items from the past! One of my many antique obsessions at the moment are old grain sacks (how lame, if I needed one, would my online dating profile be?!)

Did you know way before we were transforming these bags into lampshades and seat upholstery, farmer's wives were already repurposing the grain sacks into dresses, towels and curtains? They even competed in National Sewing Contests to show off their fashion skills. Pretty thrifty of them, huh?

There are so many ways to craft and decorate with grain sacks.

If you adore the rustic farmhouse feel, then I bet your bottom dollar that you're bound to be inspired by this round-up of 16 fabulous grain sack ideas!
