I’d been seeing painted globes on Pinterest lately and it got me thinking…hmmm…we have an unused globe just sitting out in our garage.
Then around the same time I saw this gorgeous decoupaged globe with a tutorial and that was when I came up with exactly what I wanted to paint on it!
Usually anything that is Anthropologie inspired is going to be beautiful and unique…which is probably the reason I was so drawn to this particular one. Anthropologie buys a lot of sweet floral designs to put in their store.
It’s amazing what people are doing with world globes…this is just one great example. After checking out Pinterest I saw globes transformed into lamp shades, globes cut in half and made into a potted plant container, clocks, food covers, bowls and the list goes on and on. I happened to pick this particular DIY project because I loved the colors she uses, along with the quote she included in this piece of art.
I noticed a globe painted very similar to this one on Etsy and the asking price is $200! There was another one on there for $215 and all they did was paint the quote “The World Is Your Oyster” on it! A place called ScoutMob is selling one, with painted writing on it, for $275! This would be a great way to earn some extra money if you’re looking to make a little extra money!
