Do you love globes or are you always finding them in thrift stores? Here are 18 DIY globe projects that you’ll love – great home decor inspiration!
I recently started a globe collection. Yep, I’m a collector. Did you know that about me? I used to collect snowglobes. I’ve also collected ceramics, patches and even music boxes. I guess it just gives me something to strive for?
I don’t know why I do it, but my latest collection obsession is globes. I’m even open to some DIY globes, actually. I’ve been visiting thrift stores now and again to see if I can find any old/broken ones to convert into some other stuff.
My decor is modern, and I feel like even though they look very “traditional library,” they go with any decor!
