A little while ago, we decided to move our TV from our living room down to the basement. It was actually my hubby’s idea, and at first I was uber skeptical, but now I’m so happy that we did it! The main floor is quieter at “quiet time” (that magical hour when Baby B naps and the other two girls play video games), and it’s also a lot easier to keep the main floor tidy. HOORAY!

Our TV used to be on our wall opposite our fireplace in the living room, and I arranged some art around it to create a gallery wall. When we moved the TV, I had to re-work the wall and add in some more art. The solution? Some easy DIY map art with a canvas I already had and some free printables.

Gallery Wall and DIY Map Art

I put the map art plus a triangle print I made a couple of years ago (you can find that free download here) in the spot where the TV was and I’m loving it! It looks super-pretty behind our new sectional which I’ll share with you soon.

Have an old canvas? Turn it into some fun DIY map artwork! It’s really easy – all you need are old maps, Mod Podge, carbon transfer paper and paint.
