Monday I shared some photos of one of the jewelry boxes I painted last week. I’ve been buying these wherever I can find them — garage sales, antique stores, thrift stores, from friends, etc. Now the Music Man is even getting in on it! A few weeks ago while I was at work on his day off he texted a photo to me and asked if he should buy this handmade wooden jewelry cabinet. Of course, I said YES! It looked really nice in the text but I was shocked when I got home and saw how big it is. It’s probably the biggest jewelry cabinet that I’ve found so far. And it’s in such good condition that I’m not even going to paint this one. The way you see it here is the way he bought it! I think all it’s gonna need is some oil.
I think it might even be homemade. It’s thick, heavy wood with no maker markings on it. (Definitely not made in China!) The felt inside is different than the other jewelry boxes I have, the drawers don’t line up exactly, and there are even light pencil lines on the top to line up the nails. What do you think?
[NOTE: I heard the story behind this handmade jewelry cabinet and blogged about it here.]
The only thing I don’t like about it is that they put velcro in to keep the doors closed. I wonder if I can buy just the magnetic closure that most jewelry cabinets have?
This will be used to display my jewelry at the next Room With a Past sale. The cabinet will be for sale, too.
‘Til the next project,
