Norman Rockwell’s “Freedom From Want” painting is so popular it has been parodied by everyone from…


Modern Family to…


The Simpsons to…



Modern Family!

Even though the painting originally graced the cover of The Saturday Evening Post in March 1943, few pieces of art are more symbolic of Thanksgiving. It’s a happy family in a cozy room. But on all of the internet no one thought to tell you how you could recreate the look of the room. Until now. If you want to redo your dining room, this nostalgia will last longer than your leftover turkey. Of course it will. It’s just a fact. Rooms last longer than turkeys.
