How far would you go to salvage vintage linoleum?Posted: November 7, 2014 Filed under: Favorite shops, Fun Finds | Tags: art, vintage linoleum 2 Comments
Would you go five miles? Fifty? How about all of 10,000 miles?
Honestly, I wouldn’t go THAT far, so I had it sent to me instead. I bought a piece of art made from recycled linoleum and other vintage goodies from BettyJo Designs in Melbourne, Australia. Here’s a peek:
Real mixed media, it has a splash of bright floral embroidery and linoleum that looks like lace from a distance.
The tiny details really make it special.
So what is it?
She’s just about life sized and ready to hang on a wall. Now all I need is a drill to make a hole in my vintage plaster wall…
Have you bought anything decorative lately? What was it?
That is super cool and what a fun way to repurpose old lino.
I would never have thought of reusing linoleum like this, but I’m happy that she did!
