Burlap is such an amazing fabric! It gives such a sense of elegance without compromising “hominess” and comfort. From planning a wedding, remodeling a home, or decorating a classroom, here are 10 beautiful things to do with burlap.
1. Silverware Sleeve

5. Wall Frames

8. Magazine Rack
Keep your magazines off the table and out of your way with this burlap magazine rack. I can see these working really well in a waiting room setting too.
9. Window Shades
I have burlap window shades in my kitchen and I absolutely love them! I wanted the job done right, but it’s too bad I didn’t see this DIY tutorial from Remodelista before making that decision. I wish mine had only cost $20 per window as well!
