Reupholstering Furniture With Recycled Materials

Casa Verde: Reupholster With Recycled Materials

When I was at the flea market last weekend, I noticed there were a lot of people selling furniture reupholstered in recycled grain, flour, and coffee sacks, which I had seen before (and adored) on a smaller scale on pillows and storage totes.

I love the rustic look of a well-worn coffee or grain sack, especially when juxtaposed with a classically-shaped chair, and I'm all about finding new uses for old materials. Whether you're up for a big DIY challenge or you call in reinforcements, next time you're looking to repurpose your favorite chaise or sofa, consider upcycling muslin, linen, cotton, or a jute sack as an attractive option that's easy on the eyes and the world. Have you reupholstered any furniture with recycled materials?
