A couple of months ago, Matt found this sweet Typographic Map of Chicago on zazzle.com for a mere $30. And, it's HUGE! It's just shy of measuring in a 2 ft x 3 ft. We thought it was super interesting.
The map has been sitting rolled up in a corner of our kitchen for a couple of months while we argued about discussed where to hang it and how to frame it. Last week, Michaels was having a 60% custom framing sale and we were totally inspired by the rest of our new wall decor, so loaded up our map and headed over there. I was so amped to get this thing framed that I started taking pictures as we were walking into Michaels!
About 30 minutes later, we had selected a pretty, simple white wood frame and a gray/green/blue mat. The picture below doesn't really capture the color of the mat accurately, but I only had my phone on me.
I'll update with pictures in two weeks when it's all done and back in our home.
