tween room wall decor idea

Thank you Michelle at {Primp} for featuring my giveaway this week! I have my own primp to share. Inspired by a issue of Jeanne d'Arc magazine featuring children's rooms, I decided to do something about the sparce wall in my son's room. I have been pretty happy overall with his recent "tween" upgrade, but one large wall had me a bit stumped.

This photo of a wall in a boy's room inspired me.
The lockers {<--swoon}. I did decide I loved the map idea enough to do my own version.
Before pictures are required to be bleak and black and white I think. This lone clock above the ikea PS locker always felt a little too bare.
Unfortunately I was only able to take blurry pictures this day, but I am thrilled with my $39 map from www.maps.com. I still would like to mount the map on gatorfoam and trim off the white edges. I decided to go with a bold 69" wide map of the geography of the earth, it is a print of a hand painted map and it has a neat look to it. I was nearly tempted by some vintage maps on craigslist, but I thought with something current, Michael might learn by osmosis.

The clock even found a new happy place in the open closet.
This idea is featured at Primp Your Stuff Wednesday.

  1. I like the idea of putting a map on the wall - it somehow reminds me of the way skippers navigated the high seas in their search for glory and adventure back in the days. BTW, of all things, why did you choose to have a map?
