Planning this map project for over a year now! I've got the maps and I'm waiting for installation details ... How did you prep the new drywall? Is there a way to remove the maps in the future? Thanks so much.

The collage was treated like wallpaper and installed over Zinsser's Shieldz primer. (Tracey will have to tell you what went up on the new drywall before I got there.) Since the maps are mounted with clay based wallpaper paste, they can be removed just as you would wallpaper. Have fun! Can't wait to see your version of the world!
