I LOVE globes. Unfortunately, the first globe I received had some water damage on it. It was given to me by a friend whose ex-husband had picked up up at a garage sale for a couple of bucks, and then sat collecting dust in the basement. She told me I could have it if I "did something fun" with it. The second globe I just happened to stumble on (almost literally) at my local Goodwill. I was SO EXCITED! Especially since, at the time, my other project globe was sitting at my parents house and I had two ideas for them.

The first globe I did, the Goodwill Globe, I decided to decoupage w/ pieces of a delapitated copy of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

The second globe, I had wanted to Chalkboard, similiar to a project I had seen on http://homeandgarden.craftgossip.com/chalkboard-globe/.
I think it turned out rather well!

I know that the sides aren't lined up quite right. It took me a bit to get it back together beacuse it's an old-school globe w/ a metal rod running through it's center. I had put the spring and small metal piece that extended the rod in a "safe place" and forgotten it... Well, I found them last night! Yay! I haven't gotten to doing a solid gluing back together yet.

Apologies for the poor pictures. It is of course night time when I finish anything and lighting isn't very good in my house for pictures. Will try to get some outside in the sun, if it ever clears up around here.

These are great! I especially love the chalkboard. I need to keep an eye out for old globes!

Thanks  Grin Some day, when I own my own house, I want to install ledges all around the living room and put different globes on display.

The chalkboarding was fun, but I haven't gotten to test it yet. I don't have any chalk ::facepalm:: It looks really neat though, so I'm happy with both of them!

Thanks for looking.
