Faux Wallpaper with Vintage Maps

Have you ever wanted the design impact of a graphic statement wall, but felt unsure of the commitment required–both to install and live with?  Well, over at The Happy Housie, Krista found a couple of ways to get around those commitment issues.  She covered a wall with pages from old atlases.

This was a fast, easy project, according to Krista.  She simple selected maps from her atlases that had similar colors, cut the pages out, and used brass push pins to fix them in place on the wall.  Krista says, “I love how it adds so much extra interest and character to the wall in their closet… for very little time and cost.”  Awesome!
