Creating A Jewelry Box For A Princess

I love doing little jewelry boxes that look like a miniature piece of furniture 😍

I painted this one quite a few months ago, and then it just sat in the "halfway done corner" of my workshop.

Once I discovered it again, I decided it was time to make it look pretty! Pretty enough for any princess β™₯️

Before shot


This piece was missing a couple knobs, so I just pulled the rest of the top 4 drawers off (they were glued on, not screwed in). The bottom one is a part of the detailed design, so that one has to stay in


Frenchic Furniture Paint in Velvet Crush

I used Frenchic Furniture Paint's Velvet Crush wall paint. This stuff is awesome! It has a built-in primer and sealer and is totally scrubbable! And it's not just for walls!

It was painted almost a year ago, so it's certainly dried, cured and ready to transform!

The holes for the old knobs didn't go all the way through. The old ones just had a little stub on the end that got glued into the space. The knobs that I bought had to be screwed in, so I needed to make that hole go all the way through.

My dremel 😁

I grabbed my handy little rotary tool and poked through the drawer!

It isn't thick wood, so it was easy to do

Decor Wax in Eternal added to details

Redesign With Prima makes great waxes, and they smell good too!

I used their Decor Wax in Eternal. A beautiful gold!

Put a little bit on your finger and graze over the tops of the details.


I also went over the edges of the top, middle and bottom as well as outlined the drawers

I love the way all of the drawers came out 😍

Then put in your new knobs 😍

I got these cute little glass knobs from Amazon. Just search for jewelry box knobs and a bunch of different designs will pop up

Since the knobs have silver in them, I decided to add in a bit of silver detailing to the sides and top using Decor Stamps from Redesign With Prima and silver metallic paint from Modern Masters

Pictures above is the Springtime and I See Paris Decor Stamps



Pour a little bit of the paint onto a paper plate. Load up your 4inch foam roller with the silver paint, then roll it onto the stamp you'd like to use.

The reason for using a foam roller is so that you can evenly distribute the paint over the stamp without adding to much and losing the details.

Then, carefully press it down onto the surface.

Be sure that you don't move it! Hold it in place with one hand and use the other to gently tap the back, especially the corners, so that the paint transfers onto the surface.

I used a branch from the Springtime Stamp and then 3 different pieces of the I See Paris Stamp. The silver paint is beautiful! It's only really noticable when the light reflects off of it. Otherwise, it kind of just blends in, making this a fun and unique deisgn

I'm so happy with this lovely piece!
