Upcycled gift tag from atlas pages - This is a neat idea. There aren't any instructions, so we'd have to figure it our for ourselves. The big issue would be finding an old map or two or an old atlas.

The Daily Bison

Over the past five years I have been battling an addiction. Yes readers I have succumbed to the boomerang-like charms of the Snelling chair. I should actually correct myself and say 'chairs' as I have three profiles ranging from the simple dining, a covetable armchair, and finally the languorous lounge piece shown in the photo above. Douglas Snelling (1917 - 1985) is another Australian designer with a remarkable and indeed tangible legacy. His pieces sit proudly in the Powerhouse Museum…

Upcycling map tables....coooool! But in sepia tints!

Worldwide adventurers, road warriors and dreamers with a sense of wanderlust can all put their name on the map, specifically on this ivory and grey globe. Your globe will be personalized with the words “Adventures of [your name],” papercut in a whimsical script and decoupaged onto a globe. The globe comes with pins, string and adhesive flags, to chart your past (or future) travels and make it even more one-of-a-kind.

Map Chair

Everywhere we look we’re seeing vintage maps and vintage chairs in childrens’ spaces. So why not combine the two into a wonderful map chair?Virginia of Roddy & Ginger blog snagged this little beauty from her local junk shop. Yes, the chair was already covered over with a map. Like the look? The same effect can be had with Mod Podge or varnish.

Really cool use of maps. Would be great in a kid room and an easy upcycle of a used bookshelf.

I am obsessed with art today. The people I admire most in this world are artists. Such a beautiful talent, no matter what form they work in.

I love this! Etsy vendor Recycling Tomorrow (clcort) gave a discarded lamp base a perfectly proportioned globe shade. This would be perfect for a library, school room or a children's room with a travel/map theme.

Upcycled globe lamp, 12 inch globemaster shade on stately desk or table lamp

So, months after my globe-buying spree, we are still discovering new and fun ways to use them. Use #134 - salad bowl was an abject failure. Raspberry vinigraitte doesn't sit well in cardboard. But this, THIS is not only a working model, it is a supermodel! This creation is the offspring of a 12 inche Globemaster desk globe and a discarded but really nice traditional table lamp. A few cuts here (on the artist, not the globe) a few screws there and a little bit of fairy magic and you have this…

Suitcase Side Table...(The perfect place to store knitting)!

You probably already know, I have a love for all things vintage...With that being said; one of my very favorites (for now, at least)... is the Vintage Suitcase! I think it all started with a pair I got form my dad...I store my half finished Christmas Stockings in them. :) Anyway I got this "lovey", free at a rummage sale...can you believe that...free! Made my day!!! I also got an old glass top coffee table with the glass missing for free. They both sat around for far too long...until one day…

Globe hanging light pendants. Love that it's not cut in half like the other ones I've seen!
