Learn how to make a vintage framed map. Full tutorial on how to distress it, make it look old and how to frame it for cheap.

I used this beautiful wine map that we had for a long time and just didn't know where to hang it. (You'll have the details on where we both it on the blog!) It was stored in the tube for so long that when I took it out, it ripped!!
