Dunn Bros. Coffee sack framed in a recycled window...decaf anyone?
Dunn Bros. Coffee sack framed in a recycled screen. I left the screen in place for a more muted look.
The recycled screen started out white. I layered red and black and then took my sander to it for a distressed look.

bluejean writes: I love keeping the screen on and had not thought of that. I have mounted coffee sacks onto used cork boards (this covers all the pin marks, scratches etc) so that it can be used as a message center as well as adding a graphic element.
Some of the bags have a graphic side and a plain side. I have stenciled designs onto the plain ones (see my other posts), so they can also be used.
I got my bags from two local coffee shops. One shop gave them to me, the other charged $3.00 each, which isn't bad either, because you get TWO sides with each bag. I have also seen them for sale on ebay for $10.00 each.
