Old maps become a new wall covering in this room shared by Houzz member philigry. Get a detailed look at the project on her blog.

A collage applied to the walls becomes a unique wallpaper here, and the globe on the dresser plays off it nicely. Tip: Look for vintage atlases at flea markets, antique shows and online. They are a great source for beautiful maps and will yield enough of them to create a wall like this.

Doing the same look with a variety of maps is a great idea too, and adds a pop of color in an otherwise neutral room. If you're a renter, there are many ways to apply this temporarily (double-stick tape anyone?) so you don't have to deal with removing stronger adhesives before you move out.

In this room the homeowner has covered the walls in small maps using painter's tape. You could create a similar look by color copying maps and applying them to the walls with either tape or wallpaper paste.

Here is something similar. This time it has been used to adhere paper maps like wallpaper to a child's bedroom. To create this wallpaper effect, adhere paper or fabric in a similar fashion. Apply a layer of decoupage glue to your wall, position the paper or fabric on the wall and firmly press down. Then add a second layer of the glue on top as a sealant top coat. This will ensure wearability over time, preventing frayed edges and discoloring.

My fave. Take a road altas and plaster it up all over. It will cover many sins of ceiling texture. Alternately, cover the knee wall paneling. I think this is fun, cool, and it’s cheap.
