Making NO COST wall art with vintage/retro appeal

Every now and then I search for cool clip art prints online. I recently came across one that really caught my eye (for what reason I have no idea). I thought this would look really cool displayed in someone's kitchen, diner, or restaurant with retro appeal. Feel free to make a copy of the print.

The easiest and most cost effective way to display this is with a scrap piece of wood. I cut it to size, painted it, distressed it, decopodged the print on then sealed it with polyurethane. It's that easy. If you are a DIY gal, you will most likely have all of these materials on hand, hence the no cost.

Here are some other pieces of art I have done in the past. Many of these prints were found at the Graphics Fairy
