Sometimes my projects are in my head and sound good to me, but I never quite know how they’re going to turn out. It’s sort of fun that way, especially when it all gels together. Here’s is one of those types of projects. Meet my feed sack chair.
A couple of weeks ago, I had my four girls with me and we were headed to pick up our weekly milk supply from a local farmer and then headed on to a flea market. We were all excited to find treasures that day.
Although the frame of the chair was in pretty good condition, it wouldn’t fit the picture in my head of the finished product. So, I grab my paint brush and give it a whitewash then heavily distress. We’re going for rustic farmhouse, right?

Oh my goodness this is so much better!!!! I love the entire chair from top to bottom. Beautiful job!

Oh my gosh Larissa your chair is stunning! Worth every cut you made into that vintage grain sack. Now instead of having a beautiful vintage grain sack hidden in a drawer somewhere it can be on display for everyone to enjoy.

Larissa, way to knock your first Themed Makeover project out of the park! 🙂 I just love this chair – it’s cool, unique, vintage, and definitely one of a kind. I cannot wait to see what you end up doing with the other chair!!

First, I love it that you are able to go to the farm to get milk! You already know from Facebook that I love your chair and can’t wait to use some of my mom’s feed sacks to do something similar.
