Thrift Store Vintage Jewelry Boxes and Display Upcycle





 I was out Thrift Shopping on my afternoon off cuz that's what we do! AM I RIGHT?
 
I was looking for a Jewelry Box I could use/sell at future
 
Craft Boutiques. I found one.
 


Then I found another one. It was a pretty box with a recessed design on top and
 
nice little feet.
 
 



Each one was $1.99.
 
SO YES I bought both.
 
Then I found another item, I am guessing was a paper towel holder.
 
 
 It was $1.69 YES I bought it. I thought it was tall enough to add
 
hooks to hang necklaces. It WAS!
 
I thought it was my day, I got to the store late morning and usually

Jewelry Boxes of any kind are in the $8 to $10 range. 
 
 I added four hooks to the top of the paper towel holder.
 
HOME and a quick wipe down of my purchases, time to get out the paint.
 



I decided on white chalk paint !
 
I had it and it is neutral if I decide to sell them.
 
Doing 3 projects at one time is easier than painting each item separately.

You only have to clean the brush once.
 
I gave a first coat and came back to check and everything was dry and ready
 
for a second coat and next, hit the high spots with #150 sand paper
 
another wipe down with a soft cloth.
 
Use your hands to feel the surfaces. If it feels smooth you are ready for the wax.
 
Wax is just to seal. It will feel like fine furniture.
 
I use a waxing brush. Just a small amount goes a long way. Put on with small
 
circular motions.
 

Lots of detail

All three-
 
 
 
This was my THRIFT HAUL just over $5.00
 
I really appreciate you stopping by!
Thank you.
