Mini Makeover- Jewelry Box; Guest

Charity at All Things Beautiful has done, well,  a Beautiful job on this tiny piece of furniture.  

So I was out thrifting once again… and always wanted a jewelry box with compartments so I could have my “jewels” all nicely organized and separated.  As of now, they are all tossed in one box and I end up shaking them to hopefully allow the one I want to fall out of the crowd.  So I came upon this box for $5.99 and thought “Okay, this has different compartments.  I’ll get it!”  Hmm, not enough compartments though.  But once again my daughter was going to a friends birthday party (3 weekends in a row -it’s no wonder I thrift shop!) and decided to do up this little box for her friend.

Here is what it looked like when I bought it.  And $5.99 is pricey for this mess of a thing, but it has cute form!  And potential!!!
I primed it.
I thought a nice sunny yellow colour would look great and fun for a young girl.  The spray paint I used is actually called sunny yellow.  It also had a wind up music player in the back missing the turn knob, so I had one I saved from my daughters broken toy with the song from Sleeping Beauty: “Once Upon a Dream”  I love that song… “I know you I walked with you once upon a dream…”  Are you singing along with me?  
Okay, here is what the lovely lady looks like now:
Whoo hoo, look at that leg!
She has inner beauty as well!  What a fun blue!
Cute handles too!
Well, I think she turned out pretty.  And summery!!  She was almost too cute to give away.  Are you a fan of yellow?  What a way to brighten up a room!
So Cute!  I looks like a piece of 
furniture for a doll house, 
and I wish it were my doll.
How do you like it?

  4. >That is adorable, I would have kept it for myself. I like yellow, esp. with blue and white. I had a yellow and white bedroom growing up, this would have been a favorite item of mine back then! For all my "jewels"!
