DIY Pinned Corkboard Travel Map


We asked for and received two large wall maps for a wedding gift (thank you Andy and Nancy!) with the intention of creating pinned maps of our travels and now, almost two years later, have finally gotten around to it!  yay!  We also have a sad plant.

The guys at home depot were nice enough to cut us pieces of pine to make the frames.  At home I lined them up with the maps to make sure my measurements were right before staining and assembling.
 I then glued cork rolls onto backing, glued the map to the cork, and screwed the backing to the frame.
^^Double checking the sizing before gluing the map to the cork board^^

 Everything magically lined up!
 Once it's finished, we got to do the most fun part of this project - putting the pins on the map.  Purple for places I've been, brown for Eric, and white for places we've been together :)
