I just purchased several pieces of this vintage barkcloth from a fellow etsian. Although I didn't have a definite purpose for it, the price was right and I thought it might work for curtains in my new 50's split-level home. So....I tacked it up to the huge front window & asked my oldest son's opinion. He thought it looked like tacky 50's/60's mountain cabin decor. Definitely NOT the look I was going for. Oh well, I'll figure out some purpose for it. Or simply re-sell it on eBay. In the meantime, I'm open to suggestions.
