Repurposed Maps Make for Wanderlust Decor
As inspiration for today’s post, I wanted to share with you my upcoming plans for the rest of 2009. Starting next week, the hubby and I will be taking a road trip across America and Canada, and when summer comes to an end, we shall be relocating to our new home. Based upon the vintage postcard above, can you guess where it shall be?
Remember Janine from UPPERCASE’s favorite vintage map? I think it resonated with all of us, and while I posted about vintage map decor ideas previously, it inspired me to delve once again into the wide world of maps — and the different ways we could repurpose them or hang them as vintage map decor.
Chez Larsson has a lovely tutorial on how to create your very own repurposed map lamp shade!
An Angel at My Table shared beautiful photo shoot pictures into her home. I actually adore the entire vintage industrial aura of this space. Those lockers are fantastic, as are the light pendants that work as beautiful decor on the bookshelf.
Kelly McGuill interior designs hung a wonderful schoolhouse map above chairs that look perfect together in its tones.
