Repurposing Vintage Maps

By Stylish Patina on Sep 05, 2012

Welcome to RePurpose Wednesday.  Todays topic is vintage maps!  I love using maps as a way to fill up a large wall that needs a bit of interest, especially in a kids room, play room or office.  I have a few vintage school maps {the pull down kind} that were salvaged out of a D.C. school and they are in mint condition {soon to arrive at the FC Shop}.  I imagine them being used in a boys room to add a pop of color.  I also love seeing maps used as wallpaper or in fun decoupage projects.  Let the inspiration begin……  

**NOTE these pictures are not mine I am lovingly borrowing them from the internet:-)

Many of these images have been placed on my Pinterest page under RePurposing Ideas – Maps
