Red Jewelry Cabinet - a Thrift Store Makeover
Here's what this old jewelry cabinet looked like when I found it at Goodwill... not the prettiest in the world, but in good condition.
I had a couple of friends over on that painting day. One of them gave this the first coat for me. I have to say that when I first saw it I hated it! WAY too bright for me. What do you think?
(Click over to my website for a complete list of supplies.) Well, I was ready to throw it out but my other friend talked me into going on. She gave it another coat. After she left and the paint was dry I decided to give it a bit more character by stenciling the sides of the drawers. Then I aged it a bit by adding some burnt umber paint to the finish I was going to use.
This is the first time I used Triple Thick Gloss Glaze. It lived up to it’s name… it’s THICK. And it gave the project a super hard shiny coat. Here’s what the stencil looked like on the back.
Now what do you think?
