Jewelry Box/Mirror Makeover

I was asked to redo this jewelry box/ mirror combo and make it fabulous.

My favorite is the jewelry box.   I love how the little windows turned out.  I decorated and cut paper to fit, adhered with matte gel medium to the top of the glass, then filled in the panes with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic.  It dries to a cool glass like dimensional finish.  Love it!  The knob… I am not sure.  I always pick them up at thrift stores or salvage them from other projects.  This one is a lovely pistachio color.  Yum.

For the sides of the jewelry box, I stamped some dressmaker pattern paper, wrinkled it up and adhered it with matte gel.  After that was dry, I did an antique white wash over the sides.  The painted parts are off antique white.  I roughed up the edges of the wood to give a distressed look.  The back, I painted with glimmery turquoise.

Same story for the mirror.  The horizontal flat part above the drawers is covered with scrapbook paper, which I doodled and stamped upon, then dressmaker pattern paper again.  I am currenlty obsessed with the stuff.  You can find it super cheap at your local thrift stores, and it is so fun to collage with!  Here is a cool collage technique video that inspired me during this project.

To finish up, I sealed the pieces with Polycrylic by Minwax.  This is wonderful for shine, protection and durability.

Lovin’ the knobs.  I hope you love this, Angel!
