I love finding and painting old jewelry cabinets. Some of them need a little more than just painting. I found this one in a local thrift store last summer. It’s the largest one I’ve ever found! It just needed a little TLC.
One of the handles was completely missing and the hinges on the ring drawer were broken.

I searched but couldn’t find a matching handle. So I decided to just fill in all the holes with Minwax Stainable Wood Filler then replace them with some of the glass handles I’ve been collecting.
Hubby came to my rescue and fixed the hinges for me while I painted.
I gave it one good coat of CeCe Caldwell’s natural chalk and mineral paint in Seattle Mist. See the other pieces I’ve painted this color HERE.
When the paint dried I wet distressed it, let it dry again, and covered it with Minwax Polycrylic . I’m still liking that better than the wax.
Here’s the finished product. Have to say, I LOVED the mismatched knobs. I usually replace the glass but this had some really nice beveled glass in it so I kept it.
Here it is on my shelf at Paris Flea Market. I guess someone else liked this painted jewelry cabinet almost as much as I did. It sold the first weekend.
