This globe is charming, fabulous, & one of about 4 I have in my house. Because I have 4 colorful spheres, I didn’t feel as guilty masking it’s natural beauty with a lot less color.
Have you ever had that single girl in your life that you love and wish you knew a guy good enough to match her up with? And have you ever had a single guy in your life that’s amazing, but you can never think of someone special enough to fix him up with. You love each individually, but never thought of mixing the two…. until now. And then after they hit it off you think to yourself, “what took me so long to fix these two up? They’re perfect for each other!” Long story short, that’s how I feel about today’s DIY combo.
I love globes. I love chalkboard paint. Why haven’t I ever thought to set them up sooner?
There’s only a few steps here, so listen carefully or you’ll miss ’em. First, add a little tape.
With a paint brush, add about 4 coats of chalkboard paint.
Remove the tape and you’re done!! Wait, it’s that easy? Yes!
I added a little chalk heart to our home sweet home and called it a day. Done & done.
I love the simplicity, color, and rich-ness of this combo. I mean seriously, why didn’t I think coupling these two charming singles before?
And if you ask me, these two lived happily ever after.
End of story.
Clearly I have a small love affair with geography.
Or this state art (from Groop Dealz) that hangs in my bathroom…
So to further my relationship with maps, I just knew I needed to add a globe to my collection!
That’s when I found this sucker at an antique shop. With a nice sticker of $12 on her.
Ka-ching…wrap her up! (Okay maybe wrapping a globe would be a bit difficult…)
And I found a nice spot on the new hutch to display my little piece of the world!
And I think this globe must be pretty vintage. Check out Russia!
It is labeled USSR, so it must have been made between 1922-1991 (thanks wikipedia!)
I don’t care how “antiquey” it is…I think my new globe is purty!
And maybe the globe will actually help me learn a little geography!
Have you jumped on the maps/globe/state art bandwagon?
