So when my fiances mother was in town they went thrift shopping and got me a jewelry box that had some horse stickers stuck on probably by the child who owned it. other than that it was very plain and just kind of old school looking.
it even had a cute little music box mechanism so i made sure to cover that when priming and painting.
SO I sanded it down and primed it with car filler primer actually which helped with nicks.
I painted over it in Aqua green Acrylic and Metallic Gold
added some stenciling on both sides.
cut some paper out and mod podged it to the glass
I stenciled some leaves on top as well
and the new bird stencil is finished~
I'm actually working on an earring and necklace holder to go above my dresser that I will be repainting and fixing as well.
I want to add another bird on a branch stencil to the top middle since the one on the original i used was way to small so when I can get one it will be finished so the top on has some sealant on the gold leaves. Luckily the mod podge dried and isn't sticky which I heard some people have trouble with.
I also want to recolor the inside fabric but its kind of a velvety fabric so i wouldn't know how or what. Must do research.
