I drew the entire map with a Sharpie, but for whatever reason (light exposure? acidity?) it faded pretty quickly. As a longer-lasting solution I painted over all of the drawn lines with a gray acrylic and a small, round nylon brush. When finished, it’s a nice, light, open space.
It still offers plenty of room to add something seasonal or celebratory, like the sweet banner that Minted Party Decor sent over.
My favorite scene, of course, is the sleepy old beagle enjoying his spot.
