When I buy grainsacks, it’s often for my shop, but when I come across monogrammed ones, I never sell them. I just don’t. They are too hard to come by and so perfect to use as a pillow or to upholster something. Just look at the settee below. That was upholstered with a vintage monogrammed grainsack.
This grainsack didn’t come with a monogram, so we added one before I added it to this antique fireplace screen. See how much the monogram makes it pop?
I found some grainsacks with a monogram and no stripes. And there was a pair of them, so I used it on two matching antique French chairs.
The monogram really stands out on the chairs.

Here I used one grainsack for a pillow on the chair and draped the other one across the ottoman.
So… this brings me to two announcements.
The first one is that I am parting with a few of my monogrammed grainsacks and they are on sale! I only have one of each.
The second announcement is that I am closing my online shop May 12, 2017. I have been thinking about it for about 4 months. Although it has done very well, I have been thinking about the future and what I see myself doing in 5 years. It’s so much work, and I barely see my family, so it’s time to cut back. But it’s not all bad news. I’m shutting it down so I can focus on my blog and the podcast DECORATING TIPS AND TRICKS.
And for all of the many people that bought from my shop, I appreciate it more than I can possibly express. It’s been a pleasure to serve you. Thank you for all of the kind words and photos you have sent of your goodies.
