From Sea to Rustic Sea

I recently spotted this amazing rustic wood and license plate USA map in my local HomeGoods store (lucky me, I actually have three local Home Goods stores!!)

USA Map HomeGoodsI took a pic and posted it to my Facebook page, where it has had 3800+ views!!

Clearly, this is a popular piece. What is it about this particular USA map that folks love so much?? There are all kinds of rustic USA map renditions out there, like this one available at Pottery Barn,

World market USA Plank Mapor in the Pinterest world-including this one I created myself.

Map and Sign on Wall SignedBut, the HomeGoods map is so colorful and unique and has so much detail-if you look closely you can see that every state is created from its own license plate!! Can you imagine the work and time that went into this project? Now, you ask, if you love it so much, why didn’t you just buy the damn thing? Truth be told, I don’t have a wall big enough to hang it on : (  But, I keep thinking about it and wondering if there is a way that I can reproduce it on a smaller scale. Which means I would need a miniature license plate from every state in the union. I guess I’d better start searching…ideas, anyone??

  2. That is awesome Susan – I can see why it’s got so many page views. I like your idea of finding mini plates to make a smaller version. It must be hard not going back to HomeGoods to pick that one up. No room to hang outdoors?
