So I'm always finding my hubby's wedding ring and watch laying around, and I am afraid he's going to lose his ring one of these days. I saw this jewelry box at Goodwill for $2 and new it could be a place to keep his ring safe! It just needed a little help. And Jamie said he didn't want a "jewelry box" so we'll just call it a watch box. ;)
Before... Yikes! Old school, but I loved how straight lined it was. I saw the potential.
First I painted the top yellow, I used a chevron stencil and then sprayed the whole thing white. After painting and removing the stencil it looked like this. Are chevrons like so 2011? Maybe, but I will always love how they look! It's definitely one trend thats staying in our house a while. :)
So anyway, I thought it needed more so I added a skinny gray chevron that I cut with my silhouette.
Eh? I still wasn't satisfied so I popped off the front embellishment and filled the key hole with wood filler. This Elmer's Wood Filler is awesome, it dries fast and sands right down!
So this is what it looked like after I sanded the wood filler and painted over it.
BUT... I STILL didn't love it 100% so I took the gray vinyl off and added a couple of felt flowers.
And now I do LOVE it!! :) Oh yeah, felt flowers save the day again!
Now, will the hubby use a pretty flowery jewelry box? We shall see... haha! Either way, it looks great in our room!
Shopping at the Goodwill can become addicting for me!! With a little spray paint anything can be transformed!
I hope I have inspired you to give something old a new life! :)
