I love old maps and I have always wanted to do something like this in our living room. This one is a map of Paris, but again, a favorite city that has special meaning to the family would make it that much more personal.
The writer in me loves this giant hand-addressed envelope turned on it’s side. Maybe it’s a long lost love letter …
My dad has boxes of the letters my grandparents wrote back and forth to each other when my Grandpa was in Europe during World War II … I would love to blow one up and frame it just like this.

I know lots of people have chalkboards or are painting walls in chalkboard paint, but this one really feels like art to me. I would have fun finding inspirational quotes to write on here.
