I’d be willing to bet the farmers of yesteryear never would have dreamed that we’d turn their work-worn sacks into beautiful things, and copy the look of them as well.

Do you think this love of grain sacks as modern decor is a trend that’s here to stay, or do you think it’s a passing fancy?

Here are a few of my own grain sack inspired projects!
