globe diy

Check out my globe. Do you like it? Does anything seem out of place? Go deeper than that.

What looks out of place? Why? Ok. You may continue.

I know you have a dozen globes rolling around at home because they have no base to keep them steady. Yes, that is sarcasm. But really, if that's you, then I have a solution.

I wonder if anyone looks at our globe and says, "Of course something seems out of place! Your globe is sitting on the lid of a pot!" Something tells me that most of you didn't. To be honest, I think it looks entirely natural.

We got this globe at a thrift store in Nashville for $1, but it needed a base. My husband isn't just remarkably handsome, he's also full of novel ideas. Me, I'm a pretty little parrot; I'm only able to remake something I've already seen. Matthew has no walls around his creativity, and it is one of my favorite things about him.

We bought this lid for $3 {panless} at a thrift store, and Matthew carved it out and then glued the globe into the crevice. It's lovely. It's perfect.

Be honest. Did you notice before I mentioned it or does it look natural to you? :)

  1. It looks like it was born this way. Absolutely! And if it wasn't born this way, it's only an improvement.


I adore your lovely comments!
