Linen Backs

I lusted over these frames at West Elm until I saw the tag per frame. I love the linen look. Very Chic. So I headed over to IKEA and bought a few frames to try this project out.



Left Over Linen from “Sophie”

Spray Adhesive



Choice of photo



I did four frames. A single of me, and one of us on one side..and a single of him and us on the other side. The photo below was taken back in 1994. We were KIDS!








This was easy, and I had fun doing it.

Freaking LOVE IT! I need to know when you'll be opening your store....if you would make me some of these frames, I would buy them from you. :-) Work is awesome!

What a great idea! I think I'm going to try that for my sister's house.

I love those linen backs. Very cool. And you know what? I love me some $3.99 Ikea picture frames. I need to buy some more, though. You just got me thinking that this project would look good with other types of heavily textured fabrics. Or that the material could be framed all by itself...hmmmm...

Sounds like a little weekend project was just if my hubby wouldn't mind me cutting up that orange linen shirt he never wears....I'm off!
