French Grain Sack Chair
By Miss Mustard Seed on Apr 23, 2012
Unfortunately, I do not have a before picture of this chair. I bought it last summer off of Craig’s List and never snapped a picture of it. It had a wood frame and lavender plaid upholstery. It was in great condition, but it just wasn’t “me”, so I gave it to Ruthie, my upholsterer to let her work her magic. I also gave her two antique grain sacks to use as the fabric. I can hardly take credit for how amazing this chair looks. My contribution was a naked chair frame painted white with some grain sacks and Ruthie did the rest.
I love her choices on the position of the grain sacks.
My *plan* was to sell it, but I am so in love with it that it’s not leaving my house. Ever. Well, I guess I shouldn’t say that, because I do often change my mind about furniture. Well, I’m at least keeping it for a while, but I will do more chairs in this style to sell.
Today, I placed an order for the first round of Miss Mustard Seed t-shirts! They are going to be a heathered charcoal gray with white writing. I went with a higher quality, traditional style t-shirt made by Champion. It has a nice stretch to it and should work well for almost all body types. They will be $12/each and I am planning to sell them at the Lucketts fair and I will make them available for order online as well. I need to get my ducks in a row before I can do that, though, so I’m not sitting in my basement packing t-shirts all day!
