If you don’t want to invest in wallpaper or deal with the sticky mess of putting it up, I have an idea to share with you for a child’s room…
My older son loves maps, geography and flags, so it was only appropriate to include that look into his tween room. Of course, there was the option of doing a mural or buying something large and expensive for his wide back wall. However, I realized that we had two old Road Atlases in our car, I took apart one and decided to use it as wall paper.
There is no secret to putting it up. I used scotch tape to attach them to each other and taped them to the wall. Super easy. Yes, it takes about 3 hours, but so does putting up wall paper if you haven’t done it before.
Sam loves it and I love the pattern and texture it adds to the room.
To top it off I had to add the American flag as a beautiful bold statement over his bed that represents how all these maps are connected.
You don’t have to use maps! This would work with pages from your favorite children’s’ book, quotes, images of your favorite artist, etc.
Most of all be creative and have fun.
Have a wonderful weekend!
