Cute gallery wall that includes the thermostat so it doesn't draw attention - LOVE the frame with wire across and snapshots hanging from little clips! would work for kids artwork too. Would be great for our thermostat wall!
Map Picture Frames DIY Map Mat: using a craft knife, trim maps to cover photo mats from your favorite frames. When finished, lay the map on top of the mat (you don't even have to tape it), and cover with the glass. We used a West Elm white gallery frame.
corner gallery wall - without the specially made corner frames. Would need to be on a corner that is in an open area; this would be really overbearing in a tight hallway. But in the right space it could look amazing. Very art gallery.
