    Hi Megan, just had to chime in about the wall maps. A friend has this one from Ikea in her kitchen. It is great because it is printed on canvas and then attached to a frame, making it “nicer” than just hanging a poster and you don’t have to hassle with framing. Only 149.00. Hope to have one in my house someday!
