Pine Framed Potato Sack

Yesterday I wrote about a burlap potato sack that I framed with barn board.  This is the second sack that I framed, and it is done in a different way.

I cut the sack smaller than the first which eliminated the weight and country.

First sack:                                                                 Second sack:

For this sack I used five pine boards which I stained after lightly distressing.  I used the same stained pine to make a mitred frame and then that sits on top of the pine boards.

This wall décor is smaller at 18 1/2" wide x 21" tall:

This gives a slightly different look from the first one.  Here are the two together: 

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


  1. It's hard to pick a favorite, I like both of them. Also like how you pieced the pine boards on the second frame.

  2. Those are both lovely and a great idea to frame them. Hope you are well and enjoying some nicer weather.

  3. I Julia ,, o love your house and your blog ,, you have a new follower

  4. You have (re) inspired me. I bought 3 sacks on a whim at a show last summer and they have been sitting around mocking me ever since. Thanks! Mine won't be as cool as yours but a guy has got to have a goal.
