I've been seeing these make-overs everywhere! They looked so cute I thought I'd give it a try!
I grabbed these jewelry boxes from my shop (the thrift store that I manage) because they have been there FOREVER! They were your average, run-of-the-mill wood box with drawers.
I spray painted two of them white and left the smallest one in its natural wood.
Then I added snips of scrapbook paper with a decoupage medium to the sides and drawer fronts.
The largest one looks great with a faux wood paper.
And the little birdie paper matches nicely!
This one was the easiest. I used a multi-patterned paper that was easy to mix up.
It was all one 12"x12" paper but had lots of prints that I could cut up for the drawers.
Not much cutting. I just used my square punch and popped out all those little squares.
This little one was fun. I didn't paint it white, but after putting all the paper on its surfaces, I wiped it down with a dark brown paint to sort of "antique" it. Then I brushed a gold paint along all the edges, wiping some of it away for a worn look. I just love the little fawns and owls on the topside.
One last thing to do... I will spray a light coat of polyurethane all over to protect it.
I had so much fun trying this! You can do this! It's so easy!
