Thrifted Jewelry Box Makeover

Audrey got her ears pierced a few months ago, so I’ve been looking around for some storage options for her jewelry.  I shopped around online a lot, and the only ones I could find for a reasonable price were made of cheapy materials with bad reviews.  Not good for a little girl with a messy room.  Haha.  Since I didn’t want to spend upwards of $50.00 on a jewelry box, I had given up on the idea.  Then a couple weeks ago, I was shopping at the thrift store and came across this little box.  I knew it would be perfect for a jewelry box makeover, and it was only $2.00!

Look at the storage inside!  I’m not in love with the color of the fabric, but it’s perfect to sort all of her little earrings.

I painted the whole thing with a creamy white, chalky finish paint.  Then I distressed it lightly and waxed it.  I wanted to make the box fun, since it’s for a little girl.  The top was my perfect blank canvas.

I gave her some choices, and she decided on Elsa, of course.  So I broke out my Silhouette to cut a design out of blue and silver vinyl.  This design came from the Silhouette store here.  I made the snowflakes bigger, duplicated some, and spread them out to fit the width of the lid.  I love that she’s wearing a bracelet.  Perfect for a jewelry box.

It looks so much better now!  Audrey gave me a great big hug when she saw it, so I think she approves too.

And here’s one last before and after for you.  Such a big difference!
