You can see my inspiration in the previous post here. I quite happy with how it turned out. It was easy enough to do:
1. Removed globe and used spray paint cap to elevate it in a spray box.
2. Used chalkboard spray paint to apply thin coats of paint.
3. Used a silver spray paint to update the globe pedestal a bit.
4. Put it back together again.
My husband was dubious about covering up the vital geographic information, but I reasoned that the names change on countries so quickly anyways that it would probably be out of date in a few years time. We already owned all of the spray paint, so the only cost for this project was the $1 globe.
