Decoupage Map Wall Art

I'm making some progress with wall decor in our new place! 

Decoupage Map Wall Art

I have had this 30x40 canvas for months trying to decide what to paint on it. So I was excited when I came upon the idea of making a large decoupaged map similar to those found at Restoration Hardware. I got the idea from Becca at From Gardners Two Bergers.  She has great tutorials!


This wall decor cost me virtually nothing because I used supplies I already had. That's my favorite kind of project!

I used THIS old map of Paris, and printed it out on card stock.  To do this I used Photoshop to make a grid over the map and printed it out in sections.  Then I cut off the extra card stock and arranged the map squares on the canvas to layout the placement.  Once I finalized the layout I made pencil markings to reference.  Because the canvas was a little larger than the map, I painted a dark brown border on the canvas. After the paint dried I began decoupaging the map (two coats).  I let the modge podge dry over night and then I sprayed on a clear matte sealer.

I love how it turned out and the colors coordinate well with my color scheme!
