Mini Makeover- Jewelry Box; Guest

04 June 2010

Charity at All Things Beautiful has done, well,  a Beautiful job on this tiny piece of furniture.  

So I was out thrifting once again... and always wanted a jewelry box with compartments so I could have my "jewels" all nicely organized and separated.  As of now, they are all tossed in one box and I end up shaking them to hopefully allow the one I want to fall out of the crowd.  So I came upon this box for $5.99 and thought "Okay, this has different compartments.  I'll get it!"  Hmm, not enough compartments though.  But once again my daughter was going to a friends birthday party (3 weekends in a row -it's no wonder I thrift shop!) and decided to do up this little box for her friend.

Here is what it looked like when I bought it.  And $5.99 is pricey for this mess of a thing, but it has cute form!  And potential!!!

I primed it.

I thought a nice sunny yellow colour would look great and fun for a young girl.  The spray paint I used is actually called sunny yellow.  It also had a wind up music player in the back missing the turn knob, so I had one I saved from my daughters broken toy with the song from Sleeping Beauty: "Once Upon a Dream"  I love that song... "I know you I walked with you once upon a dream..."  Are you singing along with me?  

Okay, here is what the lovely lady looks like now:

Whoo hoo, look at that leg!

She has inner beauty as well!  What a fun blue!

Cute handles too!

Well, I think she turned out pretty.  And summery!!  She was almost too cute to give away.  Are you a fan of yellow?  What a way to brighten up a room!

So Cute!  I looks like a piece of 
furniture for a doll house, 
and I wish it were my doll.
How do you like it?

That jewelry box is SO super-cute! Can't wait to see more of your projects! :) Thanks for the follow, and I'm following you right back! :)

Oh I am so in love with this! It looks so much like my own dresser, now I'll be on the hunt for one too. The blue velvet is perfect with that yellow. I bet the lucky girl who gets this will be thrilled.

That's adorable. I love you work. This is my new favorite blog. NOT even kidding. What kind of paint do you use?

Heidi June 4, 2010 at 8:22 PM  

That is adorable, I would have kept it for myself. I like yellow, esp. with blue and white. I had a yellow and white bedroom growing up, this would have been a favorite item of mine back then! For all my "jewels"!
Have a great weekend.

Gorgeous! Love the pop of yellow! I don't know if I could have given it away either:-)

This is absolutely adorable! I've never seen a jewelry box like this! You sure did punch her up with that happy yellow color! I love it.
You're just too good!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Well shoot that just turned out to be the cutest thing. I would have never thought of painting it a bold color like that. I just love it and the blue lining really pops. What a lucky girl to receive this.

Have a fun weekend. Hugs...Tracy :)

Thanks so much for showing off my jewelry box. Now I really wish I had of kept it because I have been looking for another since for my daughter, but they are not as cute as this.

Thanks again!!
