An outside opinion:
You said " Not sure I want to Jerry rig something for the globe connection seeing how they did not come with them."
So don't. You obviously liked them without the globes. Paint them and enjoy!
You also said "with the globe on them makes them too high for the house".
So don't put a globe on them now. Enjoy them as they are or after they are painted the way you want.
I can't see the entire garage but from what I can see, they would look good positioned on either side of your cabinet on the left and let the globes on the top shelf be the focus for globes. IMO would be a nice display.
When you are ready to sell; deal with adding a globe at that time, if that's what buyers want/demand.
Oh, one more option....
You could cut a hole in the ceiling like this Texas Museum did in order to display their Texaco Pumps....🙄😂
