    I love your vintage maps, Julie, and your old ladder/bookshelf. What a great idea!

    I think they look great especially on the greenish walls. Love the colors. As a teacher, it pains me that I didn't realize what a treasure those maps were when they were being removed from classrooms. Now everything is digital and on SmartBoards. There aren't many maps hanging around now.

      I know! I love imagining these in a classroom years ago & wish I knew the stories behind them!

    I love it! I have wanted to do something similar in my kids playroom. I actually got super excited and got an old school map off etsy- not reading the entire listing, and when it arrived I discovered its a laminated version. Oh well! I still like the look of it (though I had planned to glue it onto a roller shade and use it as a window covering.)

      Thanks, Andrea! I'm sure you'll find a great use for your map! Don't forget–when you're forced to go with Plan B, things can still turn out great!

      Ooops! Sorry 🙂 We found them in a booth along the far left wall. They were all rolled up and sort-of hidden. Is that where you were?
