Metallic Paris Jewelry Box

Hi friends!  I’m happy that I was able to squeeze in a smaller project in between working on my dresser makeover (reveal coming Friday) and also getting the house ready for baby.

Earlier this summer I bought this plain little wooden jewelry box:

First I spiffed it up with some Modern Masters Matte Metallic Paint in Champagne
(affiliate link).  Unfortunately I forgot to use primer, so I had to paint about 4 coats.

And I added the word PARIS from this stencil in white craft paint (affiliate link):

I love how it turned out – but you know I love anything French.   😉

I hope you’ve been inspired by my jewelry box makeover.  Have a wonderful day, friend!

    I was totally inspired by your gold jewelry box Jenn. I have about six of those babies sitting in the workshop waiting for makeovers. Hmmm, I’m thinking at least one of them will be glammed in gold. Thanks!
