Hallway Love

27 Jun

Our hallway has been neglected for way too long.  There is just too much space to not hang something on the walls.


We wanted to be able to stand back and look at the places we have visited, and places that we would like to visit while we are in Georgia.  We found a road map travel atlas in Target for $2.00 and hung up the states that surround Georgia (states we would most likely visit) on a few cork board squares. I used Command 3M Velcro Strips since the ratings of the cork squares that I used had a bad review on the double sided tape that came with them.  Plus 3M is awesome when living in the college apartments since we can’t make any holes in the walls, and when we are ready to remove the cork squares, the 3M product comes right off without messing up the wall.


Red push pins are for places that we have already been to while the black pins are places we are planning to visit soon.  It’s a neat way to look at how much of the state of Georgia we have already covered and how little of the middle and panhandle of Florida we have seen.


This little project kind of reminded me of something I would have done in high school, but I found it fun and helpful for us to think about new places for quick weekend trips.


We still have to add the Tennessee map and a few other little details that I have thought of to make the wall more personalized and eye catching.  Hopefully we won’t take six months to complete the wall, stay tuned.
