My Jewelry Box...

I don't have a lot of expensive jewelry - mostly costume stuff - although I do have some beautiful gems my husband has presented me over time.  It was all crammed in a small jewelry box on my dresser.  I looked around to find something larger, but didn't have much luck.  I thought I'd make my own...

I found a 4 drawer chest I liked.  Added some wooden wheels as legs; primed, painted, collaged, stamped, etc.  I lined the drawers with black velvet.  It turned out nicely, don't you think?

Happy Pink Saturday and New Year. That is really creative, very artful and very Diva! Appropriately you! :) And I think, why can't I think of things like that!? Is your background the same paper as that on your chest? Or just similar? Very very nice. I think you'll enjoy it way more than otherwise purchased. Way to go! Jenn

Hello Pat, Your jewelry box makeover is the perfect white shabby chic we all love so much. It is a good size too.

Happy Pink Sat.
Hugs, Jeanne

I love it!!

It is a very beautiful piece! I love the color and the aged look. My jewelry box is a piece of furniture which is kind of silly considering most of my jewelry is costume jewelry too (my friend calls is "fashion jewelry" she says it is a nicer sounding term).

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh marvellous stuff, such a good find that little chest in the first place, and then...lovely job, it looks great. I love the idea of the velvet lined drawers, makes such a special presentation for your treasures.

Wow, what an awesome jewelry box!! Btw, you said to ask you next Friday ... how are those resolutions going? ;D

Bridget said...

That's a beautiful jewelry box! Seeing that, I do believe now that the best satisfaction we can get out of a project is if we do that project ourselves, from planning to finishing it altogether. Where did you get your inspiration?

You really made a beautiful jewelry box. I wouldn't have thought to do that with a chest of drawers- you are very creative.
