Today I’m sharing another thrift store makeover. These always remind me of the show “Flea Market Flip”. I bought this jewelry box at a local Goodwill store. I think it was $6.99. I’ve seen them often at Treasure Island Flea Market for $10. But Goodwill prices have continued to go up in the last year. Last time I was there I actually saw a cabinet like this for $24.99! What!?! No way!
Sorry… off my soapbox now and on to the jewelry cabinet makeover. It was in good condition outside. All the handles were still there. But I didn’t like the glass and the fabric inside was stained and had some water damage which made the cardboard warp.

Supplies Needed for this Flea Market Flip
- old wooden jewelry cabinet
- Tattered Angels Decor & DIY Paint, Mankato
- metal sheet, cloverleaf pattern
- tin snips
- staple gun & staple
- Canvas Corp Tissuestock, French Script
- craft scissors
- decoupage medium
- small paintbrush
So my first step was to pull out the cardboard and fabric. It wasn’t attached very well, to begin with, so it came out easily.
You can see how it stuck a little more on the other side. I knew I was going to cover it with paper so I just pulled off as much as I could and smoothed it down.
I tried out some new paint on this project. Since I’m on the Canvas Corp Brand Crew (design team) this year they provided me with some supplies. This paint was part of my first order with them.
I was impressed by the coverage. This is one brush stroke. I thought it might take several coats for this light color to cover the dark wood but it only took one with a little touch up afterward.
Like with all my jewelry cabinet makeovers, I start with them upside down so I don’t miss anything.
Here’s the inside after I applied the Canvas Corp Brands tissuestock. And you can see my fancy photo set up. Yep, I just use my iPhone!
I measured and cut the tissuestock to fit, brushed on a coat of Mod Podge, placed the tissuestock on, and finished it off with another coat of Mod Podge.
Here’s another close up so you can see the finished door. The glass in these doors is easy to remove with those little tabs at the top and bottom. I traced the glass on the metal sheet, cut it out, and stapled it in.
