Jewelry Box Before and After

I believe I spent a whopping $3.99 on this beauty.

I had thought to paint something magnificent on it. Sparrows, skulls, a Ouija board, something arty farty perhaps. But those scalloped edges just kept saying "nope!" to all my ideas.

But I like what happened. It's pretty and shabby and is a perfect match for my not-at-all-precious jewels.

The papers are all from this Architextures 8x8 Paper Pad. I did have to piece it together... but I think that kinds of adds to the vintage, shabby charm.

The hardware I just removed, slapped on a coat of white paint, and sloppily wiped when dry. The paint will continue to wear as I use the drawers, and that's a good thing!

Anyway, I'm glad to have somewhere pretty for my macaroni necklaces.

Hope you're dandy darlings!
