Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Globe

032
I LOVE love all the painted globes I have seen.....
sooooo I decided to paint one too! 
001
I used a thrift store globe {$3} & 2 sample pots of
Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint (FREE}
My stockist offers a buy 2 quarts get a free sample pot !

006
I used Aubusson Blue chalk paint and painted 2 coats of water
012
Then I used Antibes Green for the land. Notice I painted a thick coat.
022
And there you have it......Easy Peasy!
When you don't use wax with ASCP is acts as a chalkboard.

Love it! I have been adoring all of the cool painted globes too! I hear that chalk paint comes in a huge variety of colors. Wonder how the earth would look with random colors for water and land... I might have to try this soon. Thanks for the inspiration! Found you on TJ!

This is such a cute idea! I bet your son loves it. The thick chalk paint on the land really plays up the texture,too. Adorable project!
