Butterfly Jewellery Box
Right here is how it seemed prior to I did anything at all to it.
Blah. Dull! And not even carried out nicely, search at that stain and complete.
I gave it a light-weight sanding simply because it was form of slick.
Then gave it a cleansing with the TSP Alternative.
Oh! And as you can see, I taken out all the hardware.
I decided to maintain the foam inserts and just go over them with this velvety fabric. (the foam will support it to be gentle so I imagined that was a acquire-win)
That velvety material is really an further pillow circumstance that I did not have to have. I acquired them for our bed and only experienced a need for 3 pillows but this came in a established of 2. I saved it for just this intent!
Here’s the website link if you are in need of substantial pillow circumstances like this a single. I like them!
Here’s a shot of them in our room…
I taped up the foam so it would not get painted, and then sprayed the full box with Zinsser Shellac primer. (forgot to get a photograph of that) I preferred to make positive it would not bleed so applied that.
Once that was dry, I gave it two coats of Satin White spray paint.
While that was drying I slash the fabric to match. I utilized my mat and cutter to lower the cloth.
Prior to I put it in however, I resolved to caulk to make wonderful, clean seams all over the edge.
Then I utilised Decoupage and Transfer Gel to connect it to the foam.
Glimpse how attractive that cloth is.
I also sprayed the components in a “hammered” gold complete.
A minimal trick for tiny screws, just stick them into a paper plate like this to get the tops.
The icing on the cake however is the quite aqua butterfly! This is aspect of that similar transfer I used on the Butterfly Tray past 7 days.
I sprayed it with that “triple thick glaze” spray sealer once again. It’s not definitely that thick, in my expertise, but does give a nice, glossy sheen that looks very protecting.
Fantastic as a jewellery box but you could seriously use it for everything.
Great! I just adore it.
Aqua jewelry, of class! )
PIN it to conserve it!
I hope you have a wonderful week! See you later this 7 days with a different exciting makeover. 🙂
