I still haven’t found the perfect solution for the empty frames on my family room wall. But I got tired of waiting for perfect (and of explaining why I have empty frames on my wall). So I turned to one of my go-to frame fillers.
They’re beautiful and easy to find. I found an entire book of maps on the clearance table at my local Borders. The book is huge and cost me $4.99. I could have pulled any pages out of it to frame.
I wish I could say that these are some wonderfully meaningful maps to me…maybe places we’ve visited or dream about visiting someday. The fact is they’re just the ones that I thought were the prettiest.
But this isn’t the final solution for this wall. Until then, I’m happy to have something pretty to look at.
If you’re on the hunt for some beautiful maps to frame, Amazon has a huge selection. And lots of them are really affordable.
Love this picture…complete with Star Wars sheets, Pillow Pet and underpants hanging out of the drawer. Cause that’s how we roll.
This isn’t the first time I’ve hung a map on the wall. I still love the huge US map that is framed in my son’s bedroom. Click here for exact DIY instructions.
I love Melissa’s sentimental take on decorating with maps. She likes to frame and display maps from places her family has traveled. LOVE!
