maps have always held a special place in my heart- especially vintage maps dealing with bodies of water. so when i heard from d*s reader kimba of a soft place to land, i was excited to see her map-related diy project.
kimba found an affordable large-scale map of the united states and decided to use it to decorate her son’s room (who’s in US geography right now). but, as many of us have found, framing something as large as this can be quite the investment. but thankfully kimba was clever enough to create a DIY frame using door frame molding, corner blocks and paint. i love the way the finished piece looks- especially without the high price tag attached.
