Feature Wall Friday: DIY Map Wallpaper

Today’s edition of Feature Wall Friday features one of my sweet friends, Melissa Michaels of The Inspired Room.  Although she doesn’t consider herself a heavy DIYer, she sure created a gorgeous map wallpaper feature wall in a small hallway in her home.

DIY Map Wallpaper Feature Wall

Melissa’s map wallpaper is a perfect example of how to easily add some charming quirk to your walls. In her post, she gives instructions on how to complete a similar wall in your own home AND tells us all about how her installation technique changed because of a DIY fail.  I love that girl!

Please head on over to her blog to check out her instructions and more images of her DIY map wallpaper feature wall.

Have a terrific weekend!

  1. Love it, that wall looks gorgeous!

  2. I love this! I would even love the family circling on the map places they’ve been to… makes it really custom! :)
