Global Recycling: Old Globes Upcycled

What other great way to add a touch of international flair or schoolroom nostalgia to your home or office space than with an upcycled globe? In their original form, globes offer unique artwork, color, and  pattern. Over the years, when country and name places change,  globes are then updated and older versions are discarded

Whether partially preserved or completely refinished with a new look, these old globes certainly deserve a second chance. Check out these revamped versions and I'll bet you'll agree that they are out of this world!
