Maps can be used to create inexpensive, but still rich looking, accents in a room.
They can be purchased almost anywhere, from new ones at convenience stores to vintage finds at thrift shops and garage sales.
World travelers and wandering wannabes can all appreciate a map design.
Decorating an interior with maps can be done small-scale, or incorporated into a theme. Walls are a great place to start with maps, and they make easy instant wallpaper.
However, walls are not the only surface they can be placed on. Furniture and other objects that can be covered with them in a découpage project can lend to a stylish makeover.
They also do not have to be reserved for any certain room, but can be displayed anywhere.
