You Can Go Your Own Way.

I found this awesome quote painting on Pintrest and fell in love with it.

I got a small fraction of my mom's artistic talent so I thought that I could totally do this myself.

Here's how it went:

First, I bought an antique map of North America on Esty for like $10 and then got a "floating" frame at Hobby Lobby because I didn't feel like spending the money to get a custom cut mat and frame for the odd sized map.

And because I didn't want a black frame I spray painted it silver...wishing now that I would have gone with gold but whatever.

Next, I painted the map. I marked the letters in pencil and painted away.

I like it! Going on the wall as soon as I figure out which blank wall deserves it most.
