I can’t even tell you how long I have been on the hunt for old farm sacks. I absolutely adore them, but they’re not always the easiest thing to find. A while back, I went on a girls trip with a couple of my great friends, and as we were traveling, we decided to stop in a local antique store as we were walking by. It was one of the best decisions ever. After browsing through the store, I found myself in a booth with a bunch of farm sacks hanging on the back wall. I stood in that booth admiring them. 

I was raised on large farm and ranch, and we now own one too, but they are very nostalgic for me. I have so many amazing memories from my childhood, and they spoke to me. I ended up buying 5 large sacks, and each one was very different from the other, but they did have one thing in common. They each represented a feed/ corn/ agriculture company. I knew I wanted to hang them on the wall, but it took me a little time to decide on the frame, and where I wanted to hang them. Once I had it all figured out, there was no stopping me!

Here’s how I framed them…

I ended up using the 19 3/4″ x 19 3/4″ Ribba Frame from Ikea. They were the perfect size for our wall, and they were customizable with the framed mat. With the frame flipped over, I laid the farm sack inside, making sure the decal/ print of the sack was centered within the mat of the frame…

I set it on top of the bag, which also made it stay in place, then added the backside of the frame and used the tabs to anchor it in place…

I repeated the same steps with each farm sack, always picking and adjusting which part of the image/decal I wanted to show. Some of the sacks had too much to fit in the frame, so I re-positioned them to display the areas I wanted…

The black frames are the perfect color. It gives the room balance, but also ties each sack together…

    1. Thank you so much! Yes, I found them in Florence, Colorado. I don’t remember the name of the store, but it was on their main street, and was a pretty big antique store. I hope that helps! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Where did you find the grain sacks? I haven’t come across any like that in AB…but what a great idea. I would have the perfect spot for two frames for sure!! I love IKEA frames, they always seem to work for me too.
