Made for my partner, fatewineroses, in the Quotes Quotes Quotes swap. I was going to post this over in housewares, but noticed a notice pointing me this way, so here it is. Smiley

The completed project:



Humble beginnings:



The whole thing was painted in a cabinet paint before painting the galaxy effect in acrylics. I traced out the sides and top of the cabinet onto paper, and drew the banner so it would loop seamlessly across all sides. I then cut out my sketch and traced it onto the box, and painted it in. The quote and detailing was done in Sharpie once the paint had dried. Smiley

"I am and always will be..."



"The optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes, and the dreamer of improbable dreams."



The glass out of the door was replaced with a little piece of something that was basically plexiglass; I just bought a sheet and cut to size.

I had a lot of fun with this one, and can't wait to do another! I picked up a jewelry box that plays the theme from the Godfather, so I'm anxious to figure something out for that one. Wink



Thanks for looking!

P.S.: fatewineroses, I had some trouble with the bottom drawer sticking. If you jiggle it by the sides rather than the handle, it'll come out! Smiley

Awesomeness! I already fell in love with this when I only saw the front view, and then I scrolled further and caught sight of the quote scroll on the top and sides *squees* It's so lovely!
Also, a very original way of upcycling an old jewelry box; seeing the before pic I would never have thought to make something Dr Who themed out of it, yet you made it work fabulously. The galaxy print on the little drawers is a great idea!

Thank you for the kind words! I was originally just going to use a plain wooden box from the dollar store, but that jewelry box was too tempting to leave at the thrift shop! Smiley

This was inspired! Very cool indeed. I see these kind of boxes at the thrift store near me pretty often, I think I may have to try my hand at this!
