Maybe Your Room Just Needs… A Map!

Hola Amigos!

Taking a small break from sanding the dining chairs to share some inspiration.  I am a huge fan of maps.  You?  A few years ago I bought a cheapy world map on-line and glued it to a corkboard so I could keep track of all our fun travel adventures.  And now with the little ones in the mix, I’m using different colored pins so we can have a healthy competition to see who travels the most!

Maps are just one of those things that will never go out of style.

But it seems like we’ve relegated them to the kids room or the office.


Which I love by the way, but now maps are turning up everywhere.

So, maybe your room could use a map?
