make me pretty – 80’s jewelry box

February 23, 2010

I know I am usually showing you all the furniture I re-do but I also have a small obsession with storage type boxes. I found this jewelry box at the Salvation army. It seemed like it was pretty sturdy and it was made of wood but it was missing a knob which is probably why it was there. This sad little box looked so 80’s to me, that shade of wood and those handles – I wanted to bring some modern cuteness to it and make it special for someone again.

So I chose a fabric that would really dress up the front of the box. I chose a paint color to match and made some new knobs. Here is how it turned out.

Check it out on Etsy!
