This is a Sponsored Post on behalf of Shutterfly and Mom it Forward. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
I find so much joy in decorating my home. I don’t need it to be filled with the nicest things (shoot, I have 4 – almost 5 – kids, which means having nice things is nearly impossible any way). More than anything, I love making my house a home and have loved learning how to decorate and create things on my own since I’ve been married to make it more of a place I like to be. Recently, we’ve been working on the guest bedroom. We decided to make it a bit of a “travel room” and have decorated it with pictures from some of our travels. We still had a few blank walls to work with, so when I was asked to decorate with Shutterfly Home Decor products, I was very excited to create even more and fill some of the bare walls.
One of the things I have always wanted was a map that showed where the hubby and I (and our family) have gone. I decided to create just that by ordering a Wood Wall Art with a Chalkboard Map I created. I added the words: Dream. Explore. Discover. using text on Shutterfly’s site. I LOVE how the project turned out. It is the perfect addition and focal point for the wall between the closet doors. White represents where I’ve been in the U.S., black shows where my husband has been and the yellow represents where we have been together. We obviously have quite a few states to hit, but I’m excited to replace some of those Black and White pins for the yellow ones in the coming years. 😉
Eek! I just LOVE it!!
I’m seriously in love with the Wood Wall Art pieces from Shutterfly. They are such great quality and can be used in so many ways. I’m already thinking about the next piece I want to order. 😉
If you’d like to use the map I made for yourself go HERE for the download.
I also decided to order some Glass Magnets for the room.
To use them I decided to paint some square metal roof tiles I bought from the home improvement store. I began by spray painting them white and then adding pieces of painters tape to make stripes. I then peeled off every other piece and spray painted gold. I let that dry and then peeled off the tape so you could see the white and gold striped. I topped it off with a layer of Spray Polyurethane and let that dry. I then placed them in some frames and put them below my Wood Map piece.
I thought these would be a fun place to hang pictures or notes with the new magnets I got. On the magnets are pictures of some of our favorite places – the beach, Disneyland, and Paris. They’re perfect for my new striped magnet frames. 🙂
I also ordered a few plaques to display on the dresser. These polka dot ones were destined to be a part of the room since the guest bedroom colors are white, black and gold. I may have a few stripes and polka dots through out the room as well, so they are perfect!
I finished off the room with a few new PILLOWS for the bed.
Yes, I’m an Arizona girl and forever will be so I thought it would be fitting to show (on a pillow) exactly where my heart is. 😉 I figure about 99% of the company we receive is from Arizona too, so it just seemed perfect. Although AZ is home, I also wanted to show that HOME is where the heart is, so that’s what I did for the other pillow. LOVE the two new additions to the bed. 😉
More than anything, I love that all these great Home Decor pieces add some beautiful touches to the guest bedroom.
I also love that these custom products were SO EASY to make. Most are a matter of just selecting the product and uploading the images you want on them. They also make it very easy to customize and add text to, which is great! (I’m ALL about basic and simple!) 😉
I’d love to try a metal print!
I love the Wood Wall Art! I really want to try it out!
I would love to create the Wood Wall Art for my family that would be displayed in our living room, showing all of us including our newest addition who was born just 6 weeks ago. Love it!

I really like the Family Collage Print that is part of the I Heart Home decor collection.
It is really hard to choose one product because they all look so cool! I’m gonna have to go with the wall decals. Our family does Polynesian dancing as a side business and I would LOVE to put up a life size Samoan fireknife dancer on my boyz’ bedroom wall. They would be ecstatic.

Most definitely the glass prints.
I love the pillows, and the white pictures, in different shapes and sizes. I have been looking for more white frames, having a hard time finding anything larger than a 4×6. I used to find them in Target, but not recently. You are very creative.

I love Shutterfly. I have a couple books in the making that I really need to get finished. Vi’s Baby book being one of them. My kids love to look through photo books and have been on my tail about getting caught up on them. So that’s probably where I’d spend most of it. I also really need to do Christmas cards this year. Didn’t get them done last year. They have some pretty cool stuff on there now that is new, so fun.
BTW, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, your states board. I need one of those. We have lived so many places and I have always wanted something to hang that isn’t tacky that represents our moves and I think that’s it! I just need to get it made. Wow, I just wrote a novel…sorry!

I love the post! I was interested in making the wood map. Did you just use the Jpeg you posted? In the post it looks gold. But in the jpeg it looks white. Also, what size wood did yo use?
And how did you make your state pillow? I love it!
Thanks for your time,
I did a 16×20 size. As for the map It’s actually a wood color. Whatever is white in the picture will be wood in the print. 😉
How do you get the print over chalkboard paint? I didn’t see an option on Shutterfly. Thank you!
Are you referring to the chalk US Map print?
Yes, thank you!
will Shutterfly do the chalkboard finish?
