Burlap and Chalkboard Wall

My entry has been bare for a long time.  I just haven't found anything I wanted to put on the wall there.

Until now.

This coffee sack was a gift from my Mom and I've been planning to mount it and frame it with old wood.  It just wasn't happening anytime soon, so I went the quick and easy route, grabbing some thumb tacks to pin it right to the wall.  Easy Peasy.  


I love the rustic simplicity.

To finish off the wall, I added a set of vintage style chalk boards I bought from Decor Steals.

I'm pretty happy with this little update.

This was one of those times that being spontaneous with my decorating projects turned out well.  

*********************************

Our weather has been so beautiful this week.  With temperatures in the 80's, we are just soaking up the hot sun.  It's funny around here because now that it's nice, it seems that all of us have our eyes on the coming winter and what needs to be done in the next 4 months.  Crazy.  

Some friends and I are having a 1 day garage sale tomorrow, so the rest of today will be spent getting ready for that.

I have my Krav test on Saturday, so it's going to be a busy weekend.  Do you have any plans for this one?  I can't believe it's almost June!!

  1. This caught my eye because I just bought 2 burlap bags at Menards yesterday that look just like this! They were $2 each. I don't know what I'm using them for, but I'll come up with something. I like how you've displayed yours.

  2. Love that burlap sack! I just bought two at The Farm Chicks antique show to use for a headboard. I never thought of framing one though, I think that would look cool!
