Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe most popular spot in the room has to be the semi-private reading nook hanging from the ceiling. Using a projector, a dinosaur mural is painted onto the "earth" wall.
Using a projector, a dinosaur mural is painted onto the "earth" wall. Also representing the earth is a work area in the center of the room. Three tables are pushed together to create one big work surface. Each table is covered with a section of a world map, so when pushed together, the tables create one large map. To make the earthy tables, the map is first laid face down on a large piece of cardboard (can use anything that won’t mark the image). The tables are then flipped upside down on the backside of the map and a pencil is used to trace the exact size of the tabletops. Each piece of map is cut out then spray mounted onto the tabletop. Finally, a couple coats of polyurethane are rolled onto the map to protect the surface.
