Breathe new life into vintage embroidered linens that may have seen better days with this simple + beautiful framed embroidery art!
I am so, so excited to be sharing this simple + beautiful framed embroidery art with y’all today – not just because it’s oh so lovely, but even more, it was inspired by my sweet friend Jamie’s new book…
I’ve been inspired by Jamie’s lovely blog for years, soaking up all the dreamy french country decor she shares there!
And so, when I heard she was hard at work compiling her own French Vintage Decor book, you better believe I begged her for a copy!
When it arrived in the mail, I couldn’t resist flipping through the pages right away, and oh my goodness, this beautiful book was even better than I’d imagined (which is saying A LOT because Jamie’s SO talented, I knew it would be ahhhmazing)!
There were SO many projects I wanted to try, but when I came across this simple needlepoint art, I knew just what I’d be whipping up first…
You see, I’ve had these old embroidered pillowcases lying around for ages.
They’re threadbare + stained and have seen better days. But with such lovely embroidery, I’ve just never been able to bring myself to get rid of them. When I saw Jamie’s beautiful framed needlepoint art, I thought it would be a brilliant way to breathe some new life into my old embroidered pillowcases!
So, I gathered them up (looking for some of your own – there are tons available on Etsy!) along with a beautiful barn wood frame I had laying around and got right to work making my own French Vintage inspired art…
It took just minutes to make and I’m so happy that I’ve found a way to display those beautiful old pillowcases I loved so much!
There are SO many other projects in Jamie’s book that I can’t wait to try!
If you want to pick up your own copy of the French Vintage Decor book, you can snag it here. I know you’ll love flipping through the beautiful photos and DIY inspiration just as much as I do!
Wishing you SUCH a lovely day my friends!
