You can’t help but fall in love with the characters from your favorite TV shows. When a series ends, or is between seasons, it’s nice to have a little reminder of the show somewhere in your house. Here are 10 TV-inspired home decor ideas to get you started.
They’ll Be There For You
After 10 years of laughing and crying in Monica’s (or Monica and Rachel’s/Phoebe’s/Chandler’s) living room, you may have wished you could hang the iconic French Jouets poster on your living room wall. Buying the poster is easy enough, but make it your own by DIYing the frame it lives in. Take a look through these frames for inspiration.
Lead like Scandal’s Olivia Pope

You can have a Pope-like office too by DIYing a conference table as impressive as hers. Start with these complete instructions for a beautiful reclaimed wood table.
String Some Lights Like Joyce Byers

Display Michael Scott’s Girlfriend’s Candle
After Jan Levinson left Dunder Mifflin (or was she fired?), she moved in with Michael and started her own candle making business. You may remember when Kevin asked, “How’s the candle game?” Jan replied, “Oh, great. Yeah, Serenity by Jan is kicking ass and taking names.”
Now you can have your very own Serenity by Jan candle!
Store Your Cereal Like Jerry Seinfeld
So much time was spent and so many jokes and breakups happened in Jerry’s kitchen. You can bring elements of this well-designed NYC apartment kitchen into your home by DIYing one main aspect of it: the cabinets. Transform your wood cabinet doors to glass ones by following these easy instructions.
If you’re a real Seinfeld aficionado, perhaps you’d like this replica of the set of Jerry apartment.
Feel Like You’re Part of the Brady Bunch

If you still have that dream, you can make it happen by attaching either some inexpensive frames or decorative wall molding. Then, paint the wall and the frames all one color. Here’s how to make perfect picture frames with mitered corners.
Mimic Monica’s Peephole

Big Little Lies
Madeline and Ed’s kitchen is like a homeowner’s kitchen paradise: plenty of space, light and airy white everywhere and a beautiful, big island. You can have this dream kitchen too (and without all the lies) just by utilizing your masterful DIY skills. Apply backsplash tile by following these instructions, build a large kitchen island yourself or an easier-to-build modified version of it, replace your sink with a farmhouse one and remember to follow these hints.
