What is one way I have recently personalized our unfinished basement?

Recently, I was #gifted a large wooden USA wall map from Enjoy the Wood which Mitch and I hung on our basement cement wall.  I chose a United States map because we love to travel throughout the USA and visit national and state parks as a family.  We typically buy stickers from each place we visit, so I LOVE that the wooden map comes with pins to mark all of the places we’ve been on vacation. My kids enjoyed finding all the places we’ve visited and pinning the flags in place.

The map is really easy to put together and takes about 30 minutes to install.  

Here are the installation steps: 

First, build the wall map flat on the floor.

Then, tape your farthest end on the wall.

Next, add the sticky tabs to the back of each piece.

Finally, adhere it to the wall.  The map even adhered to our concrete foundation!
