Decoupaged globe

with 4 Comments

I want to show you all a great find I did at the skip a while ago. The globe itself was quite pretty but the metal holding it was an awful gold colour. Also the bottom was wood that had been infected by woodworm at some point. Therefore, I treated the wood with woodworm treatment and covered it with decoupage of photos from a history book. I painted the metal with a dark grey. I quite love the final effect.
