Old charts and maps
Over the years, I have collected numerous maps from backpacking, Caving, climbing and nautical charts, all worn from use and marked with where I've been. They are either outdated or too worn to be useful anymore. I cannot bear to throw them away.........so............
I happen to have a huge blank white wall in my house. Why not apply these to the wall as a sort of wallpaper? Unfortunately, the wall has rough plaster so they'd first have to go on some type of backing (maybe smooth faced foam).
Unfortunately, I have no sense of aesthetics so i am asking for advice on how to make this look good. This wall is actually quite large, about 20' wide so it might accomodate a lot of the charts/maps. Arrange them all oriented the same? tilt them? One partially atop another?
