So I was out thrifting once again... and always wanted a jewelry box with compartments so I could have my "jewels" all nicely organized and separated. As of now, they are all tossed in one box and I end up shaking them to hopefully allow the one I want to fall out of the crowd. So I came upon this box for $5.99 and thought "Okay, this has different compartments. I'll get it!" Hmm, not enough compartments though. But once again my daughter was going to a friends birthday party (3 weekends in a row -it's no wonder I thrift shop!) and decided to do up this little box for her friend.
Here is what it looked like when I bought it. And $5.99 is pricey for this mess of a thing, but it has cute form! And potential!!!
I primed it.
I thought a nice sunny yellow colour would look great and fun for a young girl. The spray paint I used is actually called sunny yellow. It also had a wind up music player in the back missing the turn knob, so I had one I saved from my daughters broken toy with the song from Sleeping Beauty: "Once Upon a Dream" I love that song... "I know you I walked with you once upon a dream..." Are you singing along with me?
Okay, here is what the lovely lady looks like now:
Whoo hoo, look at that leg!
She has inner beauty as well! What a fun blue!
Cute handles too!
Well, I think she turned out pretty. And summery!! She was almost too cute to give away. Are you a fan of yellow? What a way to brighten up a room!
