Decorate Your Home with Old Maps

Thursday February 28, 2013

Last week I came across an old atlas I bought when I moved to my current city over five years ago. I can't remember the last time I used a map, but it reminded me how much I love maps.

Instead of tossing out my old maps, I decided to repurpose them into home decor. You can cover a lamp shade, line dresser drawers, decorate storage containers, create magnets or, my favorite, frame the map of the world, a country, a state or a city and mark all the places you've visited or plan to in the future.

Do you have any old maps lying around? Have you found any unique uses for old maps?
