You can read about the first part of this journey on my April post about the Kansas School Map, click here to read. After securing all the unruly parts of the pull-down Kansas map on the foamboard, I tucked it away -- knowing there would be a lightbulb moment sometime in the future to direct me how to use the map.
My friend Katie had a bunch of old windows in her booth this week. Some were fairly big -- big enough to "frame" an old pull-down Kansas map.
This window had the wonderful old glass,
wavy and with air bubbles.
The window cleaning took the biggest share of the time. I barely had to trim the foamboard for the map to fit behind the window. I just tacked it to the back of the window -- done!
The monster window did weigh a ton. So I knew I had to do a heavy duty "hanging" job. I put two heavy duty handles on the top. Someone could put a wire or chain between the two, or put the two handles over some hooks to hang. Now ready to display in a man-cave or study.
