      Thanks Tara!! It was easier than I thought too!

    I love it! What a big difference that would make! I assume I can use other wrappers or scrapbooking papers I still have with me. It’s also very easy to do. You don’t seize to amaze me. I’m so happy to have found your site. It’s a very practical way to spice up a boring room. Thanks again.

    Love it girl! The knobs look great against the map too! Pinned and tweeted!

  4. Love the maps! It’s amazing what some paper and a little Mod Podge can do to makeover a piece!

    Very cool drawers. Thanks a lot!

  7. Very cool! We must have been on the same wavelength this week- I decoupaged the inside of my end table drawers! 🙂

    I am so impressed! I absolutely love this idea and I can’t wait to try it out! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Great idea! I saw map coasters once and to this day I regret not buying them at the garage sale I saw them in- now I’m inspired to map something out myself!!! Maybe even something for my son’s room since I have been trying to think of a way to add a travel element there. Thanks!! I am definitely looking forward to following you.

      Thanks, Connie! I love the idea of putting it in your son’s room. On my way to visit!

    Great tutorial to make recycled map drawer makeover and its very nice looking drawer.

  11. This is a fantastic idea! Would it work on the clear plastic drawers, with a different adhesive? Just wondering. Thanks for the idea and the post!

    1. Dinah Wulf says:

      Thank you, Deborah! Yes it would work on plastic. What time of adhesive were you thinking? I believe you can make your own Mod Podge solution with white glue and water 50/50, but I haven’t tried it.

  12. Those glass knobs are perfect for these drawers since they don’t block any of the map goodness. 🙂 Love the new look!

  13. Nicki says:

    I love that! It makes such a huge difference in that whole furniture piece!

    What a nice upcycle. I like the crystal knob against the maps- makes it look quite elegant.

  16. Claire says:

    Wow the maps really improve the drawers. I love working with maps.

  17. Those maps add so much vintage charm to the room! I love how they turned out. I just found you on the Moonlight & Mason Jars Link Party. I just starting co-hosting a new link party and we’d love for you to join us. It starts every Tuesday at 7pm and runs throughout the week. Thanks! Dream. Create. Link. Party

  18. What a fun project! It looks wonderful!

  19. Love how this turned out! My 5 year old has a vintage airplane themed bedroom and I think adding some maps like this would be perfect.

  20. Oh you know I am all about a good upcycle! LOVE THIS!
