I’ve got a couple of DIY wall art projects to share with you today, and the main ingredient in both is wood – planked, stained, and beautiful wood! First, Aimee from The Vintage Estate got an order from a customer for a large planked wood United States map similar to one sold by Pottery Barn. Her hubs built a large sign from 1x4s, and Aimee then used a projector to trace the outline and paint it in. Talk about a unique focal point!
As soon as Stacie at Stars for Streetlights saw an artistic map of the Great Lakes for over $100, she knew she had to try to make it. She ended up turning the project over to Sean, a Chicago native with a connection to the lakes and also the patience to cut out five layers of cardstock with an X-Acto knife! I must say I am pretty much in awe of Sean’s steady hand. Even up close, the map looks fabulous!
