A while back I came across a very dated jewelry box at the thrift shop, it was only $3.99, so I scooped it up. When paint was the theme for So You Think You’re Crafty last week I decided to dig it out of the ‘needs makeover’ pile and give is a breath of fresh air!
A little paint went a long way, updating this little 80’s Jewelry box. I mixed one of my favourite colors (Voice of Color Wintergreen Mint PPG1229-2) with a bit of BB Frosche Chalk Paint Powder, and within a few minutes, I had updated this drab chest.
I would have stuck with the original hardware and just spray painted them, however one handle was missing. Luckily I had some sweet glass knobs from D. Lawless Hardware on hand that suited the makeover perfect! I was honestly worried they would be too big, but they worked great, and the fact they were all mismatched, gave it a unique touch.
I was a bit concerned about the yellow velvet lining inside, but I think it works with the rest of the colors.
This little jewlry box is perfect for my daughters treasures, she has something in every drawer! It even has a music box, that plays a sweet melody!
Isn’t this a cute makeover project, and you can certainly complete it in only a few hours. Be sure to follow along with the So You Think You’re Crafty Competition, great crafts, and awesome contests each week!
