Grandma’s Jewelry Box Gets Spiffed Up For the Next Generation

Over at Cutesy Crafts, Jessica tells us that her sister was beyond thrilled when she inherited this jewelry armoire from their Grandmother.  The only thing she didn’t love about it was the orange tone of the oak finish.  She asked for Jessica’s help to give the large jewelry box a new look.

Armed with chalk paint, Jessica set out to tone down the unlovely finish.  She painted both the interior and exterior with white chalk paint.  She removed the hardware on the outside of the armoire while painting, and reattached it once the paint was dry, because she liked the look of the vintage door pulls.  After some light distressing, the jewelry armoire is ready for a few more years of service.  You should definitely click over to see the interior shots of this marvelous piece–it has some pretty incredible storage options!
