Woman Makes Insane Betty Boop Diner In Her House
Tracy Campbell, 47, had been collecting Betty Boop merchandise for a while when she decided she would take her obsession to the next level.
Opting to turn a room in her house into an American diner, she got to work decorating the small room from scratch, until it looked like had been plucked straight out of a 60s movie.
Seriously, it's like stepping into a time machine!
Speaking to Tyla, Tracy said: "I have collected Betty Boops for a while now and have always wanted an American diner. We decided to give it a go... "
Fortunately, Tracy and her partner had managed to snag diner booth chairs second hand ahead of the DIY mission - but they looked as good as new.
They'd accumulated the rest of their decor on Ebay, Amazon and various other selling sites, and had also been gifted items for Christmas and birthdays over the years.
At first, Tracy and her partner were worried that, at seven foot by ten foot, the room might be too small to decorate.
They were concerned about it "looking cramped and messy," given the amount of memorabilia they had.
But, determined to plough on anyway, they got to work constructing the diner in the space they had - and were actually pretty thrilled with how it turned out!
"It took a long time to collect all the things we needed to decorate it, still adding bits when we finished initial decorating," Tracy explained.

The whole project cost the couple in the region of £3,000, and took a lot of grafting from them both before it was perfect.
"[We] love this room," Tracey said, discussing the finished product. "It's cosy and definitely my favourite room in the house!"
While you'd be hard pushed to be as much of a Betty Boop fan as Tracey, you can certainly start building your collection, too, if you want to replicate her design.
We did some digging and found some 'merch to get you going on a diner of your own.
If you've got the cash to splurge, why not buy some diner tables and chairs of your own? We found this stunning blue set on Amazon, as well as a slightly cheaper set here, if you're not lucky enough to snag one first hand.
This salt and pepper shaker is an absolute must for any Betty obsessive, too.
And as for the rest? We'll leave it up to you.
After all, half the fun is collecting all the bits and bobs yourself...Enjoy!
