Map Project #3

FINALLY got a picture of this thing.  Just a National Geographic map I've had forever (doesn't everyone have several old maps sitting in a drawer somewhere?) cut up and individually framed.  I originally got silver frames at Walmart for $1 each on clearance.  Turned out I didn't have enough so I got these plain black frames for $1.50 each (full price!) at Walmart.  I actually like them better than the original silver ones.

I've been going back and forth about where to hang it up and then today as I was walking from the kitchen to go upstairs I spied the perfect place in our living room.

What do you think?

i think it will look great! I saw somewhere that instead of hanging a big group of frames on a wall that you should tape paper on the wall first, and then you can measure down the back to where the hanger is and put the mark on the paper and make sure your nail is the in right place before you stick it in. just thought i'd give you that tip!
