In our home we have an obnoxiously blank wall that only holds an old photo that was given to my sister from her ex boyfriend..Weird right? Needless to say, we needed to do something with that wall and pronto. We had thrown around the idea about buying a map and pinning all the places we had been, but we never could figure out a clever way to actually pull it off. So, we were stoked to have stumbled upon a clever post on Wit & Whistle about creating an easy to do cork board map.
Thanks you to Amanda over at Wit & Whistle for the brilliant idea!
P.S. Check out her super cute Etsy shop and help her add more pins to her map.
Metallic silver map
24x36 cork board
** We did have to cut our map in order for it to fit properly inside the cork board.
Red Pins: Where the Señor and I have traveled together
Agua Pins: Where I have traveled
Dark/assorted colors: Where the Señor has traveled (he takes up most of the map)
We had tons of fun doing this project, and even discussed where we would like to add more red pins. I would like to add Iceland, Norway and Sweden brrrrr, and he would like to add Barbados, Belize, and Bolivia ahhhhh.
Eventually, we will add pins to the USA, and buy a special color of pins to mark friends and family located around the world.
Have a great weekend!
