A long time ago, I blogged about this wooden plaque I was working on.
I bought it because I stumbled upon it online and immediately recognized it from Liz Lemon's office on 30 Rock. Yeah, I'm kind of obsessed with that show, and I'm always molding my life to be as much like Tina Fey's as possible. So in the spirit of TV-obsession, I bought the wall plaque on ebay and was intent on hanging it in my office just like ol' Liz Lemon.
But I wanted to make mine just like Liz Lemon's, or at least pretty close.
And when I bought the plaque, there was way too much orange:
So I painted. I sanded. I painted. I sanded. It was a long, delicate process.
And finally, after I sanded off the last of the orange flowers and repainted white ones in their place...I love it. I absolutely love this weird, funky artwork from the sixties! It's not exactly the same as Liz's, but I like to think Liz Lemon and I might be the only two people in the world with a wall plaque like this.
Because who takes this much time to work on altering a weird retro wall plaque?
30 Rock set designers.
I like those odds.
