Easiest Pottery Barn Knock-Off Ever!

I love everything about this picture.  The bedding, the side table, the bed itself.  I even love that dirty, wrinkled burlap sack hanging on the wall.  Say whaaaaaa????  A dirty sack on the wall?  Let's look again:

Well, as I was digging out from under some clutter last week I remembered, "Hey, I have some dirty, wrinkled burlap sacks!"  And I might just be able to hang them haphazardly on the wall too!  And voila!  The easiest PB knock-off.  Ever.  In the history of the universe.

Yep, there's another old sack, wrapped around a pillow,
dreaming of its future as an actual pillow.  Poor, sad sack.

I found these coffee bean sacks sold by weight at a fabric clearance store several months ago. I didn't pay more than $8-10 for 4 of them--and they even came with a few free coffee beans in the bottom.  The softer ones are destined to become pillows, and thanks to PB, now I know what to do with the rough-textured ones too.  Coffee, anyone?

  5. I love this! I go gaga over knock off's! I would be delighted if you would share this at my VIP party @ http://designergarden.blogspot.com/2011/01/vip-party-1.html

  6. How cute! I would love to find sacks like that!

  7. Love it! Were did you find your sacks? I love to hear how people find these things I never get lucky enough to find any:)

  8. Awesome knockoff! I'm so jealous that you were able to find sacks like that. I haven't been able to find any, and the ones on Etsy and Ebay are outrageously priced. You scored! I just signed up to be your newest follower, I'm a new blogger. I'd love if you'd stop by for a visit and maybe return the favor!

  9. Several of you asked where I found these sacks--they were at Allen's Foam & Fabric Outlet in Fletcher, NC. I suggest looking for the most dingy, run-down looking fabric store you can find! Places like this are great for cheap finds as long as you don't mind digging.

  10. I am on the hunt for some fabric like these! I just love the look of it. Thanks for coming and linking up to Fantastic Friday, I hope you come back and link up again this week!
