Today I am showing you my very simple version of the hand painted world globe trend.
If you search on Pinterest you will find tons of beautifully custom painted globes. I have been seeing them around as of late, and as it turns out, I just happened to have a small globe that I wasn’t using.
So I thought that I would give it a try. This is my globe before:
I really love the painted globes that I have seen with bright colors and print all over them. But, I am no artist by any stretch of the imagination, so I kept my design simple.
I figured the less I applied, the less chance to mess it up.
I just painted the globe with chalk paint, the stand with craft paint, stenciled with a extra fine point paint pen and sprayed it with some clear gloss finish.
And there you have it.
A fairly quick and easy makeover that adds a pop of color, and kept an old globe out of the “to be donated” pile for a little longer.
