DECORATE WITH BURLAP

Since everyone is going burlap crazy, I thought I would share this sofa. We have another new store in town and they have a booth with lot's of burlap creations.
Love the burlap lamp shades on the lamps behind th sofa. This is a great look, but I don't think this sofa would be too comfortable-surely it would be scratchy-itchy! The pillows are great-made of recycled sweaters. Love them!
Really you could do a room on the cheap with burlap and old sweaters and some recycled lamps and it looks great. I am joining http://www.bunnyjeansdecorandmore.blogspot.com  and http://www.blissfulrhythm.blogspot.com  for their parties.

Good Evening Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share tonight. Oh how pretty is that sofa, but you know I am like you, I would think it would be very itchy indeed. Wonder how people do it? Do you just not sit on it? Maybe only look at it?

Love those pillows though. Recycling sweaters, now who would have thought? I have got to take a harder look before I donate from now on.

Those lamps are really pretty and could be displayed in so many rooms. Love them.

Thanks for taking me along this evening. I have so enjoyed myself. Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I was thinking the same thing...it's nice to look at but to sit on? I'm thinking itchy, scratchy too. Love those lamps tho.

Hmmm, I'm not sure I would like the feel of burlap. I do like the sweater pillows, though!

I don't think I would actually use real burlap on a seating surface. I think it would be way to scratchy!

The sweater pillows do however look really comfy and I love the flowers on those shades. I have shades very similar to those and was going to add some kind of trim. Maybe flowers?

Thanks for sharing at my Bunny Hop.

What a beautiful sofa. And the pillows are darling. I'm with you on the scratchiness of the burlap. But it sure looks wonderful. I came over from the Bunny Hop and I'm so glad I did. I love your blog and am following. I'm going to go to some of your other posts. I really like what I see here.

Warmly,

Nann

I have a sofa similar to that. I need to have it done, but I don't think I want burlap.

I luv those pillows.
