A Framed Flour Sack

This morning I purchased this cloth Stockton Brand Unbleached Flour Sack at a local antique shop.  I paid $5 for it.  I don't think it's super old or anything because it has a zip code and a UPC, but it's fun kitchen decor.

I went out to my garage and picked out a painting that I had got before Christmas.  I really don't like the painting all that much, but the frame is great.  Solid wood and pretty big.  I am pretty sure the painting was done by an amateur artist.

So I got out my Annie Sloan Old White Paint, and painted the frame.  I distressed it and waxed it with just clear wax.

Rather than mat the flour sack to get it to fit the frame and have a glass cut, I just tied on a piece of cotton clothesline rope and clipped the bag on with clothespins.

I hung the frame on the door of my kitchen.  I think I will hang it on the kitchen wall after I repaint!

  5. Carlene, this is such a cute idea! Love how you hung it with clothes pins! I just picked up some old clipboards at a thrift. Going to hang a few with old photos like you did. Wondering what do you mean by folders? Thanks so much for the inspiration!
