Butterfly Jewellery Box

Right here is how it seemed prior to I did anything at all to it.

brown box with brown insides on white counter

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.

And…ta da!

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.
