A couple of months ago stopped into my local Goodwill to see if I could find any hidden treasures. I ended up finding a jewelry box that had an interesting look , it was a bit outdated looking though. I’ve been itching to do a DIY project and the cost for the jewelry box. Only $5! ( Its a MELE Jewelry Case)
All it needed was some paint to update it. I wanted the majority of it a silver but wanted a pop or color on the drawers so when its closed it would pop through the lattice doors. I ended up choosing a turquoise color.
When it was done… it was exactly what I wanted.
I first took off the doors and hinges. Wipes & cleaned the surfaces.
I decided spray paint would be convenient and had a good experience using it in the past.
I picked up Rust-oleum painters touch paint & primer in ‘Metallic Aluminum” & Rust-oleum American Accents in “Satin Seaside” . I really like this brand because it only took 2 coats , dried fast, & easy to use. I believe they were $3-4 for a can & an array of colors to choose from.
I put down a large piece of cardboard and went to town. For the drawers , I cut out pieces of cardboard to place right on top so the fabric wouldn’t get paint on it. My cutting wasn’t exact lol so I did use a little painters tape for extra protection if there was any space.
Before I didn’t know what I was going to about the fabric. It looked outdated & drab looking but this turquoise color made it look more golden & complimentary.
I also added a little detail on the handles. I took a q-tip and added a little silver paint to bring out the details.
I put my lipstick & gloss holder on top for now. Not sure if I will use it for make up/ beauty or jewelry just yet.
