My employer was decluttering his office recently and decided to throw away this nautical chart (a map of waterways). It was still in the plastic sleeve and in perfect condition so I took it home with an idea to frame it and hang it in the Cottage.
I knew we had a large frame with glass that would probably fit it from which we had removed a water-damaged poster.
I cleaned up the frame and glass with glass cleaner and smoothed the map as best I could to remove any dents or creases. (Normally I would have ironed a paper map but this chart is actually made of vinyl so ironing was not an option.)
I cut down a piece of foam core board to hold the chart in place within the frame.
Once it was all together I found a place on a wall in the Cottage to hang it.
The size and colors are perfect.
Do you take other people’s cast-offs? Do you use them or store them?
