    This is a great idea! I’m not much on wallpaper, but this is a fun look that I think one of my boys might love. Thanks for sharing it!

    I love this! What a fantastic idea and it turned out great!

    I actually did a project with a big map in my son’s room last week. I’ll probably write about it next week.

    Thanks for sharing your project! And welcome to DIY Day!

    This is a fantastic idea!! Once my newborn boy gets his own room, we’re planning to decorate in a transportation theme. Maps would be perfect all over one wall of his room!

    Okay, seriously…..can I do this to my whole house? I’m so in love. And angry that all my mother kept was old dance costumes. As if I could hang THOSE on my boys walls ;)

    I love it! I am thinking AAA would be another source for free maps.

    It looks great and is so cute. What a fun room for kids. It would be great of course in a beach cottage or porch, too!

    I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this idea! When we make over Ladybug’s room into a big girl room, I will definitely keep this in mind. Awesome job, Leigh!

    I am totally going to feature this next week! I can hardly wait. Your new pics are even better than the ones you shared with me before!!! This is such a good idea! You should send it to Rachel from One Pretty Thing (she’s the coolest cat ever). This is a shoe in for a feature!

    HUGS Leigh!

    The room does look amazing! I’m proud of my uber-crafty sister!! Do you ever catch the little ones staring at the maps?

    WOW! This is AWESOME! I love this idea. It would be great of an office too (since I don’t have kids, just dogs and cats). I would think that lots of people have NG and the maps are still in them. I carted mine around for years before finally donating them to an flea market that also had books. Sorry I don’t have them anymore. Freecycle is a great idea too! You could do this with almost anything, but the smaller you go, the longer it will take to get it done! Life Magazine (old copies because I don’t think they are printing anymore) had wonderful photos, it would be cool to use those great photos too. I love the idea of only two walls too. This looks fabulous. You are the bomb! Cara Jo

    Hopping over from Kimba’s place. LOVE this idea. We have a bunch of those maps too. We are so doing this in our boys room! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Love the maps. It would be especially great for homeschoolers as we are always getting the atlas out and looking for somewhere to keep it open! I also buy Readers digest Atlases at the 2nd hand store and use their large pages for covering books and wrapping gifts!! Very cheap and so individual!

    Thank you for the great detailed information you provided in your post. I used your technique to do a map room for my 3 year old son. I appreciate the idea you shared!!

    Hi Leigh. I love what you did with the maps. I have three doors (don’t worry, they’re flat) that I’m considering covering with my own set of NG maps. I’m a bit lazy for wallpaper paste, and wondered what you think would happen if I just used spray adhesive. Thanks!
