Every week when it gets to be Friday, I admit I get pretty excited. I can’t wait to decide which element to highlight for my Farmhouse French Friday tip each week. Then when I pick something I think, “Oh yes, this is my very favorite.” Then the next week, I go through it all over again. I love rounding up as many photos as I can find of the featured element of design. So this week (once again) this is my very favorite thing.
This French crib converted to a settee has a mix of vintage fabrics on it and new ones. The neck roll pillows were made from vintage grainsacks. The throw is a section of a vintage bedspread, and the pink pillow was also a bedspread at one time. You can read about this project HERE.
Here’s another look for you. The materials are all new, but they have a vintage feel. To find out how I made them, click HERE.
Below, I have more pillows made from vintage materials.
I also like to use grainsacks.
This is why I love vintage linens; just look at the texture and the hand embroidery.
More pillows made from vintage torchons. These were in my shop, but sold out.
Here I have vintage napkins and a vintage apron.
Below a vintage tablecloth becomes a throw at the foot of the bed.
At the base of my bed, I have an antique French bedspread.
You can see it up close and find out where I bought it HERE.
I used some gorgeous linen pillowcases at the farm HERE.

Where do you buy the vintage look grain sack fabric?
Sheila, I will try to have it available in my shop for you as soon as I can.
Love your tips as always. I have the farm house pitcher with the blue bands too! Stuck in a closet somewhere just have brain freeze on decorating it French country.
Did you buy or make the blue striped tufted cushion in the first photo? If you purchased it, can you share where it was from? If you made it, do you have a tutorial?
Sally, I bought the fabric, and had my upholstery person make a custom cushion to my specs for the bed. I don’t have a source for these or a tutorial. I wish I did!
