Wanderlust Map Sign
For a couple of months I have been looking all over for the perfect unique pieces to design my entry art wall. I had a red entry wall for many years with a mirror and some art on each side, when we changed our living room and dining room I decided I needed to change my accent wall to a shade of blue. I picked out a medium turquoise or teal blue shade, then started looking for unique pieces to display our families love for travel, adventure and wanderlust.
I had been looking for a map that I could then glue a sign or wooden letters that would read Wanderlust but was having no luck and was so busy over the summer I never had the time to look for everything or when I did couldn't find what I wanted. One day one of the shops I follow on Instagram has posted a wooden slice with the word Wanderlust in a gorgeous cursive font with blue lettering on her page. I went to the shops page that she had ordered from and fell in love with their cute and awesome designs. I sent them a custom request asking if they could use a map on the wood slice then paint the word Wanderlust in a blue ombré. My living room is all shades of blue and dining room is a lighter aqua blue, Jamaican aqua by Benjamin Moore. I instantly was responded to by the owner of the shop and then waited for them to order some maps. I was so excited when they sent me the photos of the finished project. It was everything I had envisioned for a long time and more.
I love the color of slice of wood and then the map matches perfectly. They mounted the map perfectly and the word really looks amazing on top of the map. I couldn't have wished for or made anything better myself. It is for sure a hit I know since I shared it on my social media I have received several emails and direct messages from people wanting to purchase my sign. I'm excited everyone loves it, it makes me happy to know my idea I had envisioned for so long was brought to light by an amazing designer and shop that specializes in custom handmade wooden signs.
