Challenge Accepted!

I took the Pinterest Challenge…It was not an actual challenge sponsored by Pinterest but rather an informal challenge posed by Young House Love! I have been trolling Pinterest for a while now and have found so many great things on there - some real creative people out there.
Interestingly enough I have also been looking for some artwork for our kitchen. We have a wall that is rather bare and just needed something but I could never decide what kind of art we wanted to add to the kitchen. Enter my pinterest creation! (PS I'm still obsessed with how our harwood floors look)

It is where we’re from and where we met – we like to tell people we met in the middle because really it is true. I drew my inspiration from here.

As to how I completed the project: I bought 3 frames from Michaels and some scrapbook paper that I liked. I found map outlines of our states on the internet and printed and cut out the shapes and glued them to the background paper I chose. The frames were originally black, but I felt that they kind of clashed so I painted them with Oil-Rubbed Bronze spray paint – that stuff is amazing.

What do you think? Anyone else out there take the challenge or create something on your own? Feel free to share your pinterest creations in the comments!
