Have you ever wondered what to do with those leftover craft supplies? Those little bits and pieces that look too good to throw away but seem too small to do anything with?
A few weeks back I shared this Dark Romance Furniture Makeover with you. It was restyled with a ReDesign With Prima Rub-On-Transfer [GIVEAWAY ALERT…so be sure to read to the bottom of this post!] and there were a few tail-end extras. My sister came up with this brilliant idea of a DIY Painted Globe using Furniture Transfers!
I love this idea because we’re always checking out the pretty globes at HomeSense, Etsy, and Anthropologie… so making a DIY replica with leftover supplies was exciting.
Luckily, we already had a few of these old-school globes on hand. I’ve noticed that thrift store globes are getting up there in price. You used to be able to pick them up for a couple of dollars. Now I see them selling for between $30-$40 at Goodwill… whaaaat?! I guess with the popularity of globe art (and there are some stunning examples – just check out this Etsy artist here), prices are bound to rise.
Here’s what we started with – well sort of. I forgot to take a picture of the globe before I painted it black so this is the exact same globe with a different base.
Here’s the painted and floral furniture transfer after! My sister is celebrating her birthday so this is going to be one of her Made-With-Love-Gifts…the best kind, I think. 🙂

DIY PAINTED GLOBES WITH FURNITURE TRANSFERS::
Step #1:: Clean and Mask
This globe had been collecting dust in a basement corner for years. I gave it a good cleaning and then spray painted the globe flat black with this spray paint.
Once dry, I masked off the globe with masking tape and a plastic bag, and spray painted the base and axle an antique rose gold.
Step #2:: Cutting Out Florals
After the world globe was sprayed black and the stand rose gold, I cut out all the florals from the leftover transfer ends. Once they were cut out, I played around with a pleasing arrangement on the globe before I actually adhered them permanently.
Step #3:: Rub-On
These transfers are really easy to use. Remove the paper backing, lay down the transfer, and rub on with the tool provided. You can see the full Rub-On-Tutorial Method here.
It’s a fun and fast project and I really like the end result. My sister hasn’t seen it yet so I really hope she likes it too. What do you think?
