I like the pictures that hang our walls to be a reflection of things that have meaning to my family. Things that tell our story.
After moving to North Carolina last year we are beyond thrilled to call this our new home state. I really wanted to display our state pride with a map. After lots of searching I finally found the perfect one, a reproduction vintage map online at Art.com.
I also like art that is budget friendly. Once I found the print I knew I did not want to spend the money having it framed. So, I looked at the sizes the print came in and then I looked around my house to see what frame might work. I ended up finding a collage frame that was in my garage. This frame worked great in our last house but I recently put a gallery wall together (will post more on this soon) and no longer needed this one and it was a great fit for the print.
I also have recently started making my own matting for frames, it is super easy and inexpensive. All you need is a glue gun, ruler, scissors and some fabric. I love the natural look and texture of linen and burlap paired with vintage prints. So here is how it all came together.
I hope I inspired you to tell your story with a map!
