Coffee Bag Creations!

15 Feb

Coffee bag creations will soon be taking over my house and life!  My mom scored big time. And fortunately I will reap the benefits.  She discovered a lot of coffee bags (over 50!) for me on craigslist in Texas where she lives.  Yeah mom! Love you!

I adore coffee bags and have been itching to get my grubby paws on some.

My mom sent me 3 of the bags so I could see what they looked like and they surpassed my expectations.  They are different textures and the variety will be fun to play with.  All the bags are heavy, thick and durable.  Some are soft with tight weave and others are rough with large weave.

And…they are large!  It’s possible too create two large pillows out of each one.

I already started a small project with the one of them. I white washed the legs on two spider leg stools and covered the tops with a coffee bag material.

My mom only sent me 3 and I am so excited to see the rest. I’ll get to see all of them soon because I am traveling to Texas later this week.  That’s a whole other story I’ll tell you all about later.  It will be quite an adventure involving a Uhaul and a journey halfway across the country with my mom! Our own little Thelma and Louise expedition (minus the driving off the cliff part).

Talk to you soon from Texas…and be prepared to see lots and lots of coffee bag projects coming your way :)

I shared this table with The Shabby Nest…go check her out!!  And our precious friend Jane at Finding Fabulous! And Whipperberry!

    Love it! I have a ton of coffee bags I’ve been trying to decide what to do with. Louis Dreyfuss is a company here in my small town — what a small world!
