One of the major things about living in a NYC apartment is that we have to decorate our home in impermanent ways without making everything look like a dorm room. One way we've been doing this is with an excessive use of black electrical tape. :) About a month ago I put electrical tape chevrons on the door, and now I've used them for frames. The best part is, it peels right off and doesn't leave any sticky gunk behind.
Here's what the map looked like before I added the frame.
The first thing I did was frame the map in one rectangle of tape. (You can see Sean's artwork-in-progress above the door. The frame for that is a completely different story.) :)
Next I added an additional layer of tape outside the rectangle and measured in the same distance in on each side. (I used a very scientific measuring tool, as you can see.)
Then I connected all of the outer tape pieces with a diagonal strip. And that's it! :)
A pretty good addition to the NYC apartment. :)
