I have a confession to make. Ever since I saw Anchor Man 2, I am obsessed with the 70’s. I loved the costumes:
And the sets were so cool:
If you haven’t seen the movie, the picture of the interior of Ron’s lighthouse doesn’t make sense, but I scoured the interwebs for when Veronica swooped in and made the place right side up, but I could not find a one. As it is, these pics are screen grabs from youtube. If ANYONE can tell me where to find pics of this lighthouse set, please, please, please leave a comment. That’s how much I loved the after pictures of the interior of that lighthouse. For now it’s fun to play I Spy the awesome 70’s decor. I spy two cool chairs in the background and one cool coffee table in the foreground. I spy a cool light fixture and a cool bookcase. And did you spy the awesome shape of that sofa??
So, I’ve gone way far afield with the Anchorman stuff when I all I really wanted to do was introduce my 70’s inspired art I made tonight. My brother brought me a box of wood parquet tile from a job he was working on. It’s really pretty stuff:
There’s some nice honey tones and some pretty grain in each tile. I’ve had my eye on them for a while, but haven’t thought of a thing to do with them yet. Tonight I remembered I had these cute little art cards from Ikea:
I thought they would look cute sort of framed on the wood tiles. So, I grabbed my Elmers glue and slapped the cads on the tiles. The only thought that was involved was deciding what portion of the wood I wanted to show. This is what I ended up with:
I can’t decide if I should hang them like are above, or vertically:
What do you think? Horizontal or vertical?
I’m really loving how these came out and I love the nod to the decade of my birth!
