DIY: Thrifted Chalkboard Globe

Another Pinterest Project!

Found this newer Globe at a thrift store for $2.99 and decided to use Chalkboard paint as seen on Pinterest. Here is how we did it.

1. Take the globe apart. This was really easy.
2. Hang the globe using string and a wire hanger.
3. Spray paint the base shiny gold.
4. Spray paint the globe using the Chalkboard spray paint. Wait 24 hours
5. Using the side of a piece of chalk rub the entire surface of the globe.
6. Erase and start writing!




This was fun and love the way it turned out

DIY: Thrifted Vintage Wood and Metal Boxes

Found this Vintage Black Metal Toolbox and Vintage Wood Box with dividers on a recent thrift run. Wasn’t sure how exactly I was going to use until today.

Metal box holds my paints and the wood box now stores my artist pads and sketchbooks.

In love with these finds added to my art area.


DIY: Shadowbox with Vintage Frames

I’ve been collecting these great Vintage Eyeglasses for a while now.  Was trying to figure out the best way to display these cool frames and decided on this Shadowbox.

I found this rustic and distressed painted Grey shadowbox at TJ Maxx and the eyeglasses were all thrifted.

I simply used some sewing pins with a white tip to secure them in place.

HOME DECOR: Thrift/Vintage Fall Mantel Decor

Fall is in the air and it’s time to decorate the mantel for the season. I used mostly items that are vintage and thrifted from around my house and purchased the white pumpkins and wheat at the grocery store.
Here I used  the following items:

  1. An old piece of barn wood.
  2. A large Blue Mason Jar filled with sticks from the backyard and Acorns from my mom’s back yard that I collected last year.
  3. I added a couple of vintage thrifted books.
  4. A couple of my favorite vintage Owls.
  5. White thrifted pitcher with Wheat from the grocery store and a few white pumpkins.
  6. Behind the pitcher is a mini vintage clipboard that I thrifted, since you can not see this in the photo I am going to find a legal size one to add so it can be seen.


Here I used the following:

  1. Rachel’s Mom’s Milk Glass Vase that she let me borrow!
  2. Fake seasonal flowers that I plan on replacing with fresh ones soon.
  3. 2 Large pillars that I’ve had forever.
  4. Vintage Wood Owl.
  5. DIY chalkboard mini wood sign.
