This was such a beat up old jewelry box that my boyfriend was going to throw away...but real wood anything is so hard to come by these days that I snatched it up and waited until an idea came to me. So it eventually did and I decided to paint it a light mint green color and decoupaged the rest.

It was going to go in the trash? For shame! I love the little roll-top feature.  You did an amazing job giving it new life again!  Beautiful work!

I love it!  The color is gorgeous!!!  I'm really glad you saved it from the trash bin.  It is too neat of a design to throw away.  I wish I could find something like that.

That is a really cool and unique jewelry box. And you did a really great job on it.  Wink

I don't really understand what that lattice part along the back and middle is for though.  Huh And of course it's going to drive me crazy. lol Do you have any answers for me?

That's probably the coolest jewelry box I've ever seen and I love the facelift you gave it.

Nice, i'm glad that you were around to rescue that. I like how you decorated it, and the overall form if it is great too.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I'm sooo inspired.  The thrift store by me has tons of those old boring jewelry boxes hanging around.
