I created a new piece for me, and it is awesome. If you did not already know, I have a thing for maps. (As seen Here and explained Here) I was looking for a way to put together a world map piece and stumbled upon this etsy ad. I am really glad that I found it, as it made my piece super easy to do.
This piece is going above the cabinets that I have in the living room – so I had Dave cut a piece of wood to match the top that we did for the cabinets. I prepped by sanding and rounding the edges. I then measured out my placement and started painting.
I used the same Valspar white that I have on my trim and other accents throughout the house.
I got my poly on, with a light sanding in between coats.
Last thoughts: ignore the TV (it’s football season!! I gotta have it out here) and the shadows…it has been overcast the past few days and I didn’t want to wait for pics.
I have a ton of ideas on more map projects, but I will use my projector for those as I will not be able to use the stencil again. sad face.

Wow! This is amazing! The best plan I had involving maps was to build a 1000 pc World Map puzzle and have it framed. This is absolutely better!
Thank you! This was a quick, fun and easy one.
This is amazing!
