At the end of a post on the guest bedroom three years ago I was contemplating using a National Geographic map as art in that room.
Well, that never happened.
But I did use one for art in my room recently.
It was a total spur of the moment thing.
I was walking down an aisle in Target and *bam* there were three largish frames on clearance for $10 each.
I got them, not knowing what I'd use them for, but knowing I liked them.
After I got them home Curt reminded me of the map...awesome.
Cut it in thirds, popped it in, popped them up.
