Burlap, and more burlap. I can't say that I forgot I had it, I just forgot how much I had.
What you see here, is about half. I remember picking these up at garage and estate sales last year,
and they've been in a container ever since. Probably because I sorta burned out on burlap projects, but I still love the look. Many of my clients wanted chairs, settees, stools etc., upholstered in burlap. I can't tell you how many I've done. You may have seen some of my pieces floating around on the web, before I started blogging. Burlap is not fun to upholster with. However, I have made bulletin boards, etc., with burlap. That I enjoy. Time to do something with these. This piece with the floral pattern is one my favorites.
Now, this next piece is actually linen, but I think I put it in the same container because it has a similar vibe. It would also make for a softer upholstery material. I also love the pattern and colors.
Okay, I'm going through the rest of it. I have a few ideas in mind already. See ya soon.
