Pinterest Challenge to tackle truly daunting and inspiring projects. For me, this DIY was simple, yet overdue. My dear friend Alisa moved from Boston to Chicago recently, and I have been trying to think up the perfect housewarming-slash-"I miss you" gift for months. As a travel bug, I knew she would appreciate the map aspect, and having just moved into a new place, she probably needed some wall decor. Really, once I picked the project and purchased the materials, the rest came together in mere minutes. Here's what the finished product before framing (pesky glass and its glare):
I hope you love it, Alisa! And I hope others are inspired to create their own favorite places art.
