The shows are great. I have fallen for The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Odd Couple, and The Bob Newhart Show. They air I Love Lucy episodes on the weekends and you know I love Lucy (heck, I named my cat Ricky Ricardo!). I just love the atmosphere and spirit of these shows; not to mention the fashion and set design of them too!
I recently added some printed artwork to my bedroom and I am convinced my bedroom decor is now a reflection of my favorite classic shows. My furniture is vintage Midcentury Broyhill Brasilia (check it out here, here, and here) and now my artwork is 1950s retro!
If you want to create similar prints, it's cheap ($3) and easy to do yourself!
What you will need:
1. Three matching frames (mine are from the Dollar Tree in black, and match the frames in my kitchen);
2. Computer with internet access and a printer with printer paper;
3. Scissors; and
4. Sewing Pattern font (available for free download here)
*If you are not sure how to download a font to your computer, read the tutorial from Kristin at Yellow Brick Road here. It's easy, I promise.
What to do:
1. Choose the font characters you want to use;
2. Open a document editor program and type in the three characters using the Sewing Pattern font;
3. Print them in the size that will match the size of your frames;
4. Trim them to fit your frames; and
5. Place in your frames!
I used the following three characters:
|I think the three represent my mom, my sister, and me. |
My mom is in the middle, my sister to the left, and me to the right.
I already had three perfectly centered holes from other pictures I had hanging there previously, so this was an easy 10 minute project!
I party at these blogs.
