"Wallpapering" With Maps
My latest project? "Wallpapering" my office niche in maps! I put the word wallpapering in quotations because I didn't exactly wallpaper the maps. I wasn't one hundred percent sure I was going to eighty percent love it so I decided to just go for it as a semi permanent option. I've had minimal experience with removing wallpaper, but it was enough to know that I never wanted to do it again!
The little office niche, used by my kids as a computer and art room, is located in a hallway near my kitchen. I've been trying different colors on the walls but just hadn't made any decisions and then.....voila! Blank wall, extra maps, it was so obvious!
train that runs through this room from my son's room. My clever husband put this together last Christmas and I have yet to blog a decent post about the production.
After all was said and done, I added thumbtacks to the edges of the maps to keep them secure and finish the look. I'm tempted to go through with a red pin here and there and mark all the places where we've lived. What do you think?
