Look at this lovely! Found her at Goodwill for $6.99. A bargain for our area. (Read that sarcastically…) Yes, it was just a few years ago that I was buying jewelry cabinets at thrift stores for $2-5. Recently, I’ve seen them as high as $24.99! That’s pretty close to what I sell them for at Paris Flea Market! But this one was in good shape and I wanted to try out a gold wax edge.

Thrift Store Jewelry Cabinet Makeover with Gold Wax
- Paint & Paddles Chalk Paint in Prairie
- Americana Decor Soft Touch Varnish
- paint brushes
- Deco Art Metallic Lustre Gold Wax
I love it when Goodwill tapes up the drawers. Nothing more frustrating than finding a jewelry cabinet with missing drawers. (Although I did buy one a few months ago and it’s waiting in the wings to be painted.)
Here’s what this particular painting day looked like at our house. Recognize any of these others from my previous blog posts?
This jewelry cabinet makeover got the typical two coats of chalk paint and a coat of varnish. No distressing today.
I didn’t remove the hardware from these cabinets. And the sides of the drawers are unpainted because I covered them with paper scraps. And then forgot to take a picture of them! But you can see similar decoupaged drawers HERE and HERE.
I just used a little paintbrush to lightly brush the Deco Art Metallic Lustre Gold Wax on the handles and around the edges. What do you think?
This is another of the fun jewelry cabinets with the side open door.
The glass was in good condition and not that gaudy faux stained glass so I replaced it when the paint was dry.
