You have probably been in a coffee shop or the home of an enthusiast and noticed furniture or decorations crafted from re-purposed coffee burlap sacks. These items allow any space to appear cultured and classy, and are very rewarding to create. Before you get started, you’re going to need some burlap sacks. Etsy and other online markets have a myriad of these sacks, but the best deal I found was on Amazon: 10 sacks for only $40. Once you’ve got some burlap sacks and creative juices, get started crafting something from this list of 5 coffee burlap sack DIY projects!
1. Storage Ottoman
Who doesn’t want a burlap ottoman to store things and act as a small counter? This guide uses a child’s toy, but the same guidelines can easily be applied to any old ottoman you find at a garage sale or Wal-Mart.
Burlap pillows – what a classic! I see these babies everywhere it seems and am continually impressed by their ability to look incredible in any setting. This guide I discovered is very detailed and simple to follow. Get your sewing needle ready!
3. Drink Coasters
If you’ve ever built your own table, you can relate to the frustration of finding water rings on your precious wood counter. This is one project I will be taking on myself to protect the table I’ve recently constructed.
4. Kitchen Apron
This project is a gem for sure. Now you can make your coffee while wearing a coffee bag. If you’re a male like me, you’ll never be looked down upon in the kitchen again.
The table I created that I mentioned earlier was made from black pipe just like the bench in this tutorial, which looks incredible with the burlap sack according to these pictures. I’ll be using this guide for my own bench soon.
Now that you’ve got some coffee burlap sack DIY projects to consider, get to crafting!
