Café ole!

Ok, I couldn’t think of another coffee related title, that’s all that would come to mind.

About a month ago, I picked these coffee bags up at a salvage store here in town for…FREE!  There were lots of them in a huge bin by the road with a sign that said FREE.  I was all over it.  The only problem, that’s when we were drowning in rain and most of them were completely soaked and smelled horrible.  I would have taken them all but I couldn’t stand the thought of that smell in the car long enough to get home.  So I only took the driest three I could find.

Enter a beat up old frame I picked up at a yard sale for $1.

And a can of black spray paint.

And of course distress the paint a little so some of that red shows through. Then staple the bag to the back of the frame, pulling it tight.

Attach a D ring to hang…

And, there you have some cool art for a coffee lover.


I’m not a coffee drinker, but I’m sure someone will love this.  I can’t imagine drinking hot coffee in this boiling heat.  87 degrees at 9:00 p.m. – YUCK!

Not bad for about $4 (including the paint), huh?

Now what to do with the other 2 bags.  Hmmmm.
