tween room wall decor idea

Thank you Michelle at {Primp} for featuring my giveaway this week! I have my own primp to share. Inspired by a issue of Jeanne d'Arc magazine featuring children's rooms, I decided to do something about the sparce wall in my son's room. I have been pretty happy overall with his recent "tween" upgrade, but one large wall had me a bit stumped.

This photo of a wall in a boy's room inspired me.
The lockers {<--swoon}. I did decide I loved the map idea enough to do my own version.
Before pictures are required to be bleak and black and white I think. This lone clock above the ikea PS locker always felt a little too bare.
Unfortunately I was only able to take blurry pictures this day, but I am thrilled with my $39 map from www.maps.com. I still would like to mount the map on gatorfoam and trim off the white edges. I decided to go with a bold 69" wide map of the geography of the earth, it is a print of a hand painted map and it has a neat look to it. I was nearly tempted by some vintage maps on craigslist, but I thought with something current, Michael might learn by osmosis.

The clock even found a new happy place in the open closet.
