Joy to the World for $12

29 Dec

joy to the world

 I love globes of any kind.  I love Pottery Barn.  I love Christmas. So it makes sense that I would really, really love a Christmas globe from Pottery Barn.  I did until I saw the price tag.  Now I would normally not purchase it and then go home and rationalize the purchase and go back the next day and get it.  I can find some very good reasons that I need things that I don’t really need.  But this was at a point in my Christmas gift purchases that my checking account was just not keeping up with my list of things that each family member just had to have.  That is a whole other topic for another day. Let’s just say that my resolution this year is to cut down on Christmas, but with my memory, I am sure that I will forget that by then.

I did the next best thing.  I went to Pinterest and searched for Pottery Barn Christmas globe and viola there it was.  This was so easy and inexpensive and turned out so stinking cute.  I love it on my fireplace mantel.  The great thing is that it can be erased and used for other occasions.

I found my globe at Target in the office supply isle.  I painted it with several coats of chalkboard paint and then using the example on Pinterest free handed Joy to the World with a white chalk marker.

The lighting in these pictures really shows off the lines on the globe, but in normal lighting these do not show as much.
