A Handmade Curiosity Cabinet and A Gallery Wall of Vintage Maps

My husband made this simple cabinet from a vintage window and pine boards. I've filled it with curiosities and found objects like vintage silver, old books, fossils, river glass, and more. I started the wall above the cabinet as a gallery wall of vintage maps. I finally found the final piece, making it complete!

Gallery Wall of Vintage Maps
This is the gallery wall above the cabinet. I began this wall a while back. I had everything but one map. The upper left corner was blank for some time. I finally found the right size frame and a vintage Tennessee map. Perfect!
