Jewellery Box

How to Up-cycle a Jewellery Box

I was given this jewellery Box for my 18th birthday, by my Aunty in America when I was living there. I have had it all this time. It is dated and needed a fresh look. So I decided to upcycle it with homemade chalk paint.

I removed the doors and panel inserts in the doors. I used white chalk paint to update this old box. After painting 3 coats of paint I  sanded it back giving it a distressed look. Finishing off with a wax and buffing it to a nice shine. I used a plastic sheeting for the inserts in the doors. I loved doing this project it was fun and made such a dramatic change. Here is the after look.
