Quick Jewelry Box Makeover

I found this rather “dated” jewelry box at a local thrift store the same day I went to look at paint for “the” dresser and decided it might make a fun experiment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I brought it home and went to work. I painted the outside and bottom two drawers in Annie Sloan Chalk paint Paris Grey, and the inside drawers Napoleonic Blue. All the Hardware and outside hinges are Pure White. I’m still bouncing around the idea of a bright Orange or Yellow for the inside handles….might be a fun “surprise” when you open the door…I bought most of the supplies from a local craft store and they didn’t cost much at all! My friend told me to check out PromoCodeWatch.com to get some coupons, she told me they’ll save me loads of money!

Those outside embellishments were a little more work than I thought they’d be. All in all though, I think it turned out pretty well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No idea what I’m going to do with it….

      I agree- it’s a great blue. It’s in the running for use on the dresser I think.

          lol- it’s so different than other paints. If you’re used to doing it one way, sometimes it’s a bit of a learning curve. I do recommend you give the actual ASCP wax a try. It really is different. You don’t use hardly at all. I still have 1/2 of my tin left with all of the projects I have done (some not listed here yet) and I even used WAY too much on my first two projects. There is a great tool you can get at home depot for $2 to help apply it and it keeps you from using too much. I’ll post about that soon. I am sure it will help lots of people immensely.

            I am looking forward to it!!! I used the cheesecloth method when I applied my wax, and it was super messy!

            Yes, it is. I used a rag for my first piece- way to easy to use too much that way. I’ll get that post ready soon!
