I'm so intrigued by maps. Those pendants are awesome!

i love using old maps. I decoupaged maps onto a small Parsons table for our daughter when she was in college, very easy to do, Also have used maps to cover an ugly old wood box for one on our sons when he was little to hold his little treasures. Cannot remember the last time I used a paper map for actual navigation!

Love the small try with the pens...copying that...and pinning it!

Pam - something is going on with us and the universe…wait til you see my post today! Reminds me of the day I bought wheat grass seeds and you posted a tutorial on growing it…crazy!

LOVE those globe lights - that is so creative and fun! How cool would they be in a study or kid's room?

Jo said...

Great ideas! I love the globe lights ~ would be so fun to add something like this to my reading corner in my classroom. Thanks for the idea!

I, too, am obsessed with maps! My grandparents use to have this room in their house that had a giant vintage map as the wallpapering. MIxed with dark wood bookshelves, it makes for a gorgeous room!

When I graduated from college one of my friends made a few of us map candles. They are so cute and kind of started me on a love for map decor. xo

Pam...some great pictures there on how to use them....I have seen those dome lights at Scott's and wish I had a place for one !

I love old maps and globes. I would love to have several old globes in the brown/neutral colors. On my to-hunt-for list! If you find some cool thrift ones I'd gladly buy them from you!:)

Dana Frieling said...

We have to perserve them via decor b/c one day our kids are going to ask, "What's that?" ha!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

I love the heart art- might even be cute for a nursery ;)

Lori said...

Last year I copied your post on map wrapping paper for wrapping a teacher gift from the classroom. It was a big hit. Now I would like to copy the trays and bowl.

Lisa - A Room with A View said...

I absolutely love maps. The hearts are adorable! There is no shortage of ideas for using these. Some great examples, Pam. Enjoy your weekend!

Nancy said...

Don't think I need a map chair :) and never thought of a whole site on map decor, but I do love a large black and white map of Paris or some covetable place on a wall. I LOVE ALL YOUR PINS>
have a great weekend.

I love them too. I have a collection of vintage world banks. they are so cute.

Holly said...

How cool to have small maps framed to show all the places you have traveled - I love that idea. And I love the map trays too. Happy weekend to you Pam - enjoy!

Crissy @ House of Marlowe said...

Great ideas. I especially love the pendants.... would be so cute in a little boy's room.

Sheila @sZinteriors said...

Wow, I haven't really jumped on the map DIYs yet, but have had a few ideas catch my eye. Your round-up is awesome! There are so many ideas right here I'd like to try. Thank you for sharing all this inspiration :-)

Carol said...

I think some of these are truly wonderful! I love maps, especially old ones, and would love to do something with one or some that I hope to find some day -- old maps are on my list of things to watch for. Thanks for sharing these creative ideas!

Carrie @ Hazardous Design said...

Such cool ideas! I think the globe bowl is my favorite

Ada (new york) said...

Wow, I don't think I have ever seen a map as a pendant (but of course there would be one)!! I confess, the map pendant is my fave.

Lisa said...

I want that chair that has a design of a map all over it.
