Chic and Shabby Jewelry box

Went to the flea market last Saturday. Picked this musical jewelry box up for $1.00. It still had the original price tag on the back. I found a couple other fun finds I can't wait to fancy up. 

 I gave her a chic and shabby make over. I used chalk paint and wax from Americana. The flowers are scrapbook embellishments. Since one of the knobs was missing, I used the flowers as a nice replacement. Since that area is not really a drawer, it's okay. I broke the glass top which didn't fit anyway, and used cardboard and scrapbook paper. I still need to decoupage the top but need mat decoupage which I'm out of. I also washed and wiped the legs and knobs with the paint. 

Hope you like it and find some inspiration.

Sewing Table Make-Over

My  first weekend project last March was an old sewing machine table that sat in my dads backyard for the past 10-15 years. The wood next to it is from an old chest of drawers that wasn't worth saving. 

I removed the top and took a wire brush and scrubbed off all the dirt and rust. I used spray paint for the base and left over paint from the paint I used in my bedroom for the top. As it was SO pink, I dry brushed it with a little white paint to tone it down.

It's now in my bedroom with a large laced doily and a TV. 

I hope to get some newer projects posted. I have such a bad habit of forgetting to take before pictures. I tend to just dive right in. More to come. 

Happy Valentine's Day!
