Quick DIY: Wrapping Paper Wall Decor

As much as it makes proper decorators cringe, the reality of my current situation dictates that I figure out temporary solutions for accessorizing my rooms because investing in pieces I truly love is just not a practical use of money when there are floors to replace and a bathroom to be gutted.  In a few years, I may be able to spend several hundred dollars on a piece of art I love, but I'm not willing to walk past blank walls until 2014.  That means I get creative in the meantime.

I was really excited to see Cavallini wrapping paper for sale at Paper Source for only $3.95 per sheet.  The vintage maps and prints are really beautiful, and boast saturated colors and a standard 20x28" size.

One sheet of wrapping paper plus a $19 Ribba frame from Ikea makes a handsome addition to my living room while I figure out what I want for the long term, don't you think?

 (excuse the crappy phone picture, it's all I have)

I think it would also be fun to decorate a little boy's room in a collection of maps and botanical prints for well under $100, or start marking the cities where you've traveled for a personal touch.

I'm excited to head to St. Louis for some quality time with my husband's family next week, and I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving! 

P.S. Be sure to rsvp for the LOFT Girls shopping party in Dallas on December 1st!
