Oh For the LOVE of MAPS - Home Decor Ideas

Hi Friends!  Sorry about the laps in postings.....we were gone 5 days for Thanksgiving and now just getting back into everything :-)  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and now getting ready for Christmas - WOW!  It is coming FAST this year - I'll have to post all the fun Christmas decor soon!

The most popular post I've ever written is  how to turn an old paper map into canvas art.  I simply cut up the map, applied mod podge to the map and pressed it on the canvases. (You can see the full tutorial by clicking the link above)

I always enjoy it when a reader will send me their version of a project I did. (So send me any projects you have tried!)

This one by Nicolle has such a great color scheme !  You can see more photos of this antiqued world map on canvas by clicking the link.

Or how about this "It's a Small World" nursery theme map on canvas that  Paul and Karissa made!

  They had fun using the map to represent Disneyland's It's a small world theme ride along with a reminder of their extensive traveling before they had their baby.

Maps.com had a TON of great maps to choose from.  These are a few examples of what they have to offer.

They also have a huge selection of globes......I've starting collecting a few globes myself.  You can bunch them all together and really create a fun and dramatic vignette.

Here are some more fun MAP home decor eye candy :-)

I am in love with the rust tones of the map below.....so beautiful with the natural wood color.

Making a collage of your map collections is a great way to make a statement and add interest in your home.

What would you think of doing an entire wall in a map? It sure makes a statement - doesn't it!  You could have fun doing a kids safari/travel themed room with a giant map mural.

I am a huge fan of symmetry......I love the way these three map posters mimic the three round mirrors on top.  

If that was MY office, I might actually work a little harder - ha!! (or at least spend more time looking around and enjoying my office!)

I hope you collected some good ideas!  The next few posts will be CHRISTMAS decor!  

Enjoy my friends!
