I realized I hadn’t posted any updates on how my room’s went. It’s basically done! This is my favourite wall of the whole thing, and it turned out exactly how I planned it in my head. I also plan on getting pins to put in the map indicating all the places I’ve been to. I’ll post pictures of the rest soon :) (one of the DIY things i did here was the tree branches screwed to the wall on the right - a jewelry display/ storage idea)
