This and that: coffee sack art

I wanted to share a recent project that my husband is actually working on.  We have often seen these large burlap sacks that coffee beans are transported in and really liked them, but we never had a clue what we would do with them.  We like them for two reasons: they remind us of our travels to Central and South America and our addiction  enjoyment for coffee : ) 

Well, thanks to the creative mind of a friend (thanks TJ!), we will soon have some on display in our house.  

On a recent trip to a large discount store in our area, my husband spotted the burlap sacks and they were only 99 cents.  Woo hoo!  You can still smell the scent of the coffee beans.  He also found the near perfect frames large enough to display them for $4.99 each.

All he did was cut the sack to fit the frame.  He then placed the glass behind the sack to keep it in place and wrinkle free.  Yes, it was that easy!  We have one more that is not finished yet, so I will post an update later.  

So...we will have a nice coffee sack display for less than $20.  Thanks babe!
