Want to experience an authentic “farm” experience? Complete with fresh eggs and horses? Make reservations at The Creek House in Muncie, IN (about an hour north of Indianapolis) – you won’t be disappointed!
Guess what I got to do? Decorate this amazing vacay home! I will show you all lots of projects I completed, but one of my faves was the giant wooden map! I was tasked with creating a piece of art that could also track the visitors who stay at The Creek House. A guest book maybe? Nah, that’s too boring. What about a gigantic Map on the wall? Yes please! This is going to live in the main family gathering room – and all families who stay will get to mark on the map (with a fancy tack and hammer) where they’re from.
Great conversation piece, super fun project to make and fun for the visitors to see where other travelers are from!
The end result:
How I made it:
- Grabbed 4 pieces of barn wood (auction find)
- 2×4’s (to secure back)
- Paint (cream and grey)
- Engineering print from Staples (outline of US Map)
- Sharpie (always)
- Cable wire (for mounting – this is a heavy piece!)
**The only obstacle I’ve faced so far is they have had quiet a few international travelers! A new map is in my future!
