Feed Sacks!

I've had this old coffee sack sitting around my house for a while now. I picked it up at an antique store with my mom, and have yet to decide how to use it. Originally I was thinking it would make great pillows. Maybe just two big ones that I could keep stacked on the floor for lounging. However, my mom thought it would look really cool to re-cover either an old bench or foot stool and I must say after seeing these photos I just might agree! What do ya think ma? The below images are of feed sacks, but the last one is of a coffee bean sack like the one I have.

I have to say this is my favorite idea... now I just need to find that bench and pillows!
