I don’t know why, but recently I have found a variety of vintage or new jewelry boxes while thrifting.
Was I looking for them, or they would show up in my face and I never noticed? Anyway, some of them are broken with potential after a quick repair. Others, like this one, are very sturdy and with all the pieces in place.
For this one, I chose to do a decoupage, using a piece of fabric 17 1/2 x 13 from a decorator’s sample book.
From my stash of sample paint, I used a paint and primer in moss-green from the Glidden Diamond collection. I used it for painting the body of the jewelry box.
These are the materials you would need to decoupage a jewelry box:
glue or Mod Podge
paint of choice
2 sponge brushes
sandpaper block 120 or 200
Clean the jewelry box with soup and water (I used de-greaser).
Remove some parts if necessary like drawers, knobs, hinges,etc.
Paint all the parts that are not going to be decoupaged and let them dry.
Measure and cut the fabric according to your jewelry box dimensions.
Apply the glue or Modge Podge to the surface, apply the fabric and do a top coat of Modge Pogde.
Let it dry and apply a second coat.
When dry, use the sandpaper to smooth all the decoupage surfaces.
Re- attach all the previously removed parts.
Hope you like my Decoupaged Thrifty Jewelry Box because I love it!. Coming soon, another beautiful transformation of another thrifty jewelry box.
