My picker, Sue, texted me a few weeks ago and told me she was at an awesome estate sale and I should check it out. My sister was on her way over so we could do some holiday shopping anyway, so we just had to take a little detour when she got here and head to Stillwater.
One of the items I purchased at the estate sale was this wooden box.
I think it might be homemade, although I’m not entirely sure of that. I’m also not sure of it’s original purpose, but I’m going to call it a jewelry box. It could also have held small hand tools, or nuts and bolts I suppose.
Clearly it was in need of some paint. I painted it in Dixie Belle’s Sawmill Gravy.
Once the paint was dry I pulled out the Royal Burgundy transfer from re.design with prima. This transfer comes in six sheets, but I only used two of them for my project.
I did the front and the top of the box.
You might be thinking that it was a total waste to use just two of the six sheets for this box (and trust me, I was thinking that too at first), but I can always use the other sheets for at least one if not two more small projects. In fact, I already used the scraps from just the two sheets I used on this project on the ice skates I shared last week.
So really, this is a great way to get more bang for your buck with the transfers.
Aren’t the colors in this transfer gorgeous? I love the combination of the chartreuse with the bright pinks. Jewel tone colors are perfect for a jewelry box.
I lined the drawers with some patterned scrapbook paper.
And I swapped out the original knobs for these petite glass knobs from D Lawless Hardware.
This box ended up being so darn photogenic I had a hard time deciding which photos to use for my post.
You probably didn’t really need to see quite this many. But I just couldn’t help myself.
By the way, I did draw the winners for the last two days of my 12 days of giveaways. Congrats to Lynn and Alice for winning those!
Thank you to Dixie Belle Paint Co and re.design with prima marketing for providing the products used in today’s project.
