Chalk-painted Jewelry Box

March 25, 2015

Hey, ya'll! Happy spring! It's still 40 degrees here, and we had snow on the actual first day of spring, but the daffodils are starting to pop up through the soil, so I have hope!!! 
It's been a super busy spring so far! We are working hard on our big laundry room project, so I haven't had much time for other projects lately. So, today I'm sharing a project that I meant to share a few months ago!!! Jeez, where does the time go?!
Remember that pretty purple and grey chalk-painted dresser my mom and I worked on together? Well, we ended up with a decent amount of extra purple paint (you can see more details on how I custom made the color in that post!) from the knobs, so we looked around the room and decided to give her old jewelry box a face-lift too!!

I wasn't entirely sure if the paint was going to stick because the jewelry box is definitely not made of real wood. However, chalk paint doesn't usually require a primer, so I had hope that this would work!

We took out each of the drawers and took the glass out of the hinged door. We gave each part two coats of paint.

And here she is!

I love how the little miniature hardware really pops now. It was hardly a feature before paint!
