Linen. Leather. Linky.

We'll get to this in a minute, but first I want to talk about the title of my blog post...
Linen. Leather. Linky.

It totally reminds me of this scene from the office where Jim dresses up like and mimics Dwight!
Do you remember this episode? lol!

Anywhoo, back to the subject. :)
 Do you guys remember that I have been participating in Project Challenge?
 Each month we are given a different material to work with and it has been so fun!
This month we are to create something using either linen or leather or both I suppose.
Here's the exciting get to join in too!!!
We will have a linky party so you can share your linen or leather project as well.
 It can be a new project that you whip up this week or an old post.

 Speaking of old posts I thought I would share an old project with you where I made a linen covered memo board.
 It all started with this lovely framed painting from the thrift store.

I removed the painting from the frame and covered the painting with roofing tiles.
 I then covered it with linen. I painted the frame and then put the whole thing back together. 
The roofing tiles make the memo board magnetic!

This entry makeover was one of my most favorite projects ever!
 It was back when we lived in Las Vegas. Three houses ago.

So are you exciting to link up your linen or leather project? We will go live with our blog posts this Friday morning!


  1. Love this project too. Great makeover!

  2. Hi Lisa! I am excited for Project Challenge - I won't be absent this time. :) I didn't know roofing tiles would make a memo board magnetic. Super cool!

  3. Fantastic job,, Lisa! Crafty and purposeful...perfect.

  4. Great job! I need to get going on my project. I've been sick today so tomorrow it is!

  5. That's such a creative idea to make a magnetic board that doesn't look like a magnetic board! I like how the linen softens it.

  6. Hi, great project! I'd like to do that with a few of my old paintings that are laying around in the garage. I need one of those book racks, too, I've always liked them. I read you use to live in Las Vegas, where about? I live in Green Valley/Henderson. I love the table and decor on it that you have pictured with Illinois House under it, gorgeous!

    Have a great day,

  7. Great Job Lisa. Love this make over.
