Best Jewelry Box Ideas to DIY
Paint or Decoupage Drawer Sides
I wish I had started doing this much sooner. I left so many drawer sides unpainted, or worse yet, halfway painted! Take a look at this jewelry box… doesn’t it just look more complete when the sides of the drawers are finished, too?
You’ll notice that several of my tips include decoupage. If you’ve never tried it, click over to Amy’s “7 Steps to Perfect Mod Podging” and you’ll see just how easy it is!
If you’ve been following my blog for long you’ll know that I used to not buy jewelry boxes or jewelry cabinets if the insides were stained. Then I figured out that I could decoupage them! So now dirty fabric doesn’t bother me any more. This old jewelry box makeover is an example of how I decoupaged tissue paper over a nasty inside!
I’ve also decoupaged burlap and other fabric or scrapbook papers inside to cover stains.
Jewelry box tops are just begging to be stenciled! See how this vintage jewelry box looks completely different after stenciling? You can completely change the style of box by using different stencils. Plus it’s so easy!
Cover Ugly Glass with Burlap
When I bought these two little jewelry boxes I was planning to just take the glass out and replace it with metal. But those glass tops were glued in there good! So I had to come up with another solution. So I just covered the fake stained glass with burlap in these jewelry boxes.
Start with one of these blank wood jewelry boxes and use your imagination!!!
