There are so many choices out there when it comes to fabric to reupholster with.  French grain sacks are very popular now and are a beautiful fabric to reupholster with as well. For me, I wanted something different.  The unexpected.

I had just recently bought two burlap coffee sacks from a local craft mall that I planned to use to recover this chair with.  You can pick these up on e-bay or you could even search a few antique stores.

I cut along the seam of the burlap bag so that I could take advantage of the entire bag and not just pieces.  I draped it over the chair cushion, flipped it over and used a staple gun to hold it in place.
