This is a project I’ve wanted to do for a long time now, but I kept finding really NICE globes–and I just couldn’t do this to a NICE globe.
Then I found a great candidate in this $3 thrift store globe (months ago). But then I had nothing to give it a better base.
I forgot all about my $3 flea market lamp base! Oooops!
Anything would be better than this cheap plastic base–right?
I know it’s probably difficult to see what I’ve done, but—
I used a hot glue gun to OUTLINE
just certain parts of the globe.
The United States, Canada, places our family has lived, places I’ve lived, places where other parts of our family live. Places we’ve traveled to and places I’d like to travel to! -ooops…looks like I’ve left out some places.
I was just having a lotta fun!
And then I painted my outlined globe with chalkboard paint!
Now can you see it–?!
I need to make a few modifications to join the globe and wood lamp base together, and then I need to “prime” the chalkboard paint so the globe has some patina to it—
