First, a metal framed, worn and faded globe is given a fresh look. I used Rust-oleum Spray Chalkboard paint for this globe, 2 coats plus touch ups.
Last of the dahlias, a slate, some vintage books and two well loved stuffed toys on my little desk.
For the 2nd globe I used Rust-oleum Chalkboard paint/brushed on, 2 coats and some 'touch ups'. Globe had seen better days, some strips had been torn off the map. Black globes look great in vignettes. (I did touch up the 'missing paint' in the plastic support after I took this photo.)
I painted the plastic base as well and so far the paint is 'sticking'.
Must admit that I love the look. DGS was very interested in identifying continents by shapes.
This is the final small project post in my mini series, may have to try it again.
Thank you for visiting. My next post will be November 21st at 7:00 am
