How do I upcycle/recover vintage jewelry chests, boxes?
How about cutting beautiful fabric to size and using a spray adhesive to glue the fabric to the boxes or chests. You could add upholstery braid or upholstery tacks to trim the edges and decorate the piece even more, or use ribbons, etc. for the trimming?
