“Forever Young” by Bob Dylan has been one of my favorite songs for ages, though I fell in love with it sung by The Pretenders. Since our first was born, I’ve been thinking the lyrics would make perfect decor for a nursery or play room, with their mix of affection and wisdom. So, it has taken me a while, but I finally typed up the lyrics and dressed them up with some fonts and colors for our kids’ playroom.
If you’d like to print a copy, you can download the PDF of the “Forever Young” lyrics printable.. And here is what it looks like up close:
If you want to change things around and create your own version, the fonts I used were Gabriola and Felix Titling. The frames are NYTTJA frames from Ikea. They are nothing fancy, but the lightweight design (the fronts are plastic, not glass), work well, because the playroom walls are exterior stucco, and I have had no luck putting nails in it, so I used these trusty 3M Command Picture-Hanging Strips. They are advertised as being able to hold a lot of weight, but I don’t like to challenge them!
I’d like to add some more art to this wall – thinking of some Instagram photos city scenes and cars, but I think these are a great start!
Never too late to finish a project… only took 9 years from inspiration to implementation!
