All Mapped Out: 12 DIY Map Projects

I’ve got travel on the brain with my quickly approaching first-ever cross country drive to my new seaside flat in Portland, Maine.  With days of new-home decorating on the horizon, it seems only fitting that wanderlust be incorporated into my decor.  And what better source of vintage-y, world-hopping goodness than wonderful old maps!

Here are twelve DIY map projects that I’ve got my ever-wandering eye on.
