Barn Board Framed Potato Sack

I live in O'Leary which is the potato capital of Prince Edward Island.  It is home to the Canadian Potato Museum which has many displays and information about potato farming, a potato restaurant, and also has a giant potato outside.

Last fall at the potato museum, I bought two burlap potato sacks and used them this week to make two different framed pieces.

The first one uses some of the barn board that I used for a couple signs and blogged about here. I cut some boards to about 4" wide and made a rabbet in the back to hold the mdf board which the burlap is wrapped around. The corners are mitred and the board really has a lot of texture to it as you can see in the close-up photo.

This wall décor is quite large at 23" wide x 32" tall.

You can see the second framed sack at my next blog post here

Everything I make is available for sale in my shop, or online through my blog, website, facebook pages or email:


  1. Gorgeous, I love these two materials put together. Happy Sunday!

  2. I love those. The wood is perfect and gives the right effect.

  3. Funny that I came here for the first time ever from GF and see that you live in the wonderful PEI! I was telling my American friend that he should visit PEI as it's famous for Potatoes and the scenery is fabulous of course. Love your amazing projects!

    1. Hi and thanks for the nice comments. Have you been to PEI? Where are you currently living?
