Mapping Out the Plan

It's that time of year....
when we need some
direction

Today we are getting the back of our cupboard
ready for our Beach Section in the store


Just so happens
that one of our favorite junkin' pals
 brought us some old maps last year


and that
was all the direction we needed :)

We taped two maps together


We took off the paper in the back of the cupboard
that we had on from spring and used it as our pattern

Then we stapled the paper on the back of the cupboard

(if we were doing this at home, we would have wallpaper pasted it on the back...
but we change the back too much to do that!)


Then we moved onto the next shelf,
and the next...and so on!




What a great backdrop for
the BEACH!

We love it....it's
Beachy-Keen,
don't you think??

I LOVE IT! I esp love it because one of hubby's interests is old maps and one of my pet peeves is boring backs of book shelves. That project would look so good in his office with the framed maps all around.

The maps are perfect for the beach theme background. Can't wait to see the pretties that you are going to display.

Girls what a fabulous idea!! I love it!! I just might use it when we move into the new house on an older bookcase we have. It would look perfect in one of the guest rooms! Have fun decorating for the Beach!! HUGS!
