MAP OUT YOUR FUTURE
A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS..AND DOLLARS:
While I love wallpapering an entire wall with vintage maps, sometimes it's an equally dramatic outcome to place just one on a wall and frame it. For a, how'd they do that, effect do this: Pick a great map from a magazine (again I find my favorites in old National Geographic magazines, usually included in every issue in the middle of the magazine as a folded insert). Use wallpaper glue to attach to wall. Purchase old frame at antique store (only frame, no glass or back, usually plentiful at antique stores) or molding from Home Depot or Lowe's. Place frame around wallpapered map. Step back, admire your work and fantasize about your next adventure.
