I first removed the hardware and the inside lining.
From Trash to Storage for Treasure
I turned an old silverware box that had seem better days into pretty storage for my jewelry.
I gave the box a good sanding to remove the deep sratches in the surface.
I decided to paint it with some Folk Art oatmeal chalk paint. I just love this soft neutral color!
I gave it several thin coats.
Once in it was completely dry, I sanded a bit on the edges to give it a distressed look.
Next, I gave it several coats of Behr white wax. I love the combo of the oatmeal color with the white wax.
I put the hardware back on. The outside was completely transformed!
I kept a few of the pieces from the origional lining for templates for the new lining. I cut out pieces of poster board and covered them with some velvet fabric.
I hot glue the new lining in place.
Now it is the perfect place to keep my jewelry! Itnis pretty and functional!
