In honor of National Arts and Crafts month, MidCenturyPage.com celebrates the creative spirit. Throughout the month of March, mid-century makers will be featured.
In an era before YouTube, social media, and big box craft stores, mid-century folks were pursuing their DIY passions like we do today. Be it art, cooking, sewing, building, or decorating, mid-century magazines gave inspiration and instruction.
This ad for Mennen Baby Magic Skin Care was published in the March 1959 edition of Good Housekeeping magazine. Although the topic is babies, and not decorating, I found the scene inspiring. Walls painted with paw prints? What a great idea for a babies room.
