Upcycled Old Jewelry box

October 28th, 2015 | Paint

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 littleย 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!
