This is a clever way to up cycle an old globe that is no longer accurate but still in decent shape! I am wondering if the finish used on this project is food safe... But it would be easy enough to insert a glass or plastic bowl inside, or even just wax paper or plastic bagel to hold the food and still keep,the great effect! Alternatively, you could put a plant inside or even a bowl of flowers! Great idea, thanks for sharing!
