I’ve wanted to take on this globe project for a while but have had a difficult time allowing myself to actually paint on a globe. I just think there are certain pieces that are best left in their original state. That is, however, until I found this globe in the clearance section. It came with some chips and imperfections so I felt compelled to give it new life. In just a few steps; a layer or two of paint, some lettering with a metallic paint pen, and a touch of gold leafing, this globe was quickly transformed into the perfect decor piece.
I picked up this globe from Home Goods, but you can find similar here and here. For the base paint I used Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in “Deep Sea” found here. You’ll also need a metallic paint pen, gold leaf and an adhesive pen.
TIP! To ensure I was centered (and spelled everything correctly) I first wrote out the phrase in chalk then went over with the paint pen. Any excess chalk easily wipes clean.
