The Uncle's got a new U.N.C.L.E.

I'm still looking for a great shadowbox to go behind our bar in the Rumpus Room, but until I do, we've got some new wall art that I am loving!

I found this baby on in the background of another ad. Etsy seller Paul Shapiro was kind enough to answer my questions and offered to sell it.  This thing is huge -- about eight feet square!

I was on it faster than - well - faster than Napoleon Solo AND Ilya Kuryakin on a double agent!!

Check out Paul's etsy shop, Creative Pal.  It's loaded with some great reproductions of mid century graphics.  One of his specialties is very detailed replicas of cardboard boxes and original packaging for what are now highly-sought-after toys and collectibles.

OK, now I have to get back to my kitchen cabinet refinishing.  Have a great week!


  1. Great find! I don't know if you watch NCIS (with David McCallum in it), but one of my favorite lines was when one of the characters asked another what the McCallum character looked like when he was young. The answer: Illya Kurakin.

    1. I do, and that was a great line! Mad Men included a brief reference to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. in the most recent season.

  2. HOW COOL! From the first time I saw it in the default picture I started humming the "James Bond" Theme!

  3. I loved that show growing up! That poster is one fun monster...brings back some great memories!

  4. Love it! I had such a crush on Illya when I was young!

  5. Man, that is one heckofa wall hanging. I really dig it!
