Maps have been in our lives for years and years. We were first introduced to them in school when we were first learning about the many countries and beautiful places all around our world. Back then, we thought maps were strictly for school, but now that we're all grown up — we actually really like them.
If you already own maps (or even globes) this is an extremely inexpensive way to add art to your walls. You're even luckier if you have a collection of maps because you can piece them together and create your own wallpaper for a childs room, library, pantry or small reading nook.
The biggest impact of maps as well art happens when a really large map is used on a blank wall. Hang it loosely with tacks, create a faux frame on the wall or if you have the extra bucks — take it to get professionally framed. If you're not looking to take up a large amount of wall space, mount your smaller map on a thin piece of wood and lean it up against a wall!
