Coffee bean Bag

Inexpensive Art for the Kitchen

Framed Coffee Bean Bag

I have been working on some wall decor for the rather blank walls we have. We have really high ceilings at the house and need a lot to fill up the space. I’ve been piecing together ideas, ordering pictures and frames (wow, frames are expensive) as the budget allows. I did buy a used coffee bean bag off of eBay for $5.00, okay actually I had to buy two of them because I cut the first one too short (bad). I found a large simple frame at Michael’s for $7.00 (with a mat) and framed the bag.  The print on the bag was unfortunately offset so it looks slightly off center (this adds to the charm right?). For about $12.00 It works and represents one of our favorite things.. coffee. Now if it were a chocolate bag… that would really be something!

Another great idea might be to staple the bag over cork for a cute useable message center too.. so many ideas.. so little space, time, and budget.
