All I know is we just turned the clocks back, and here it is almost Thanksgiving! For the first time in many years, we are hosting Turkey Dinner for the family. However, how am I going to find the time to cook and plan for guests while preparing jewelry boxes and crafting kits for the upcoming local holiday boutique–just two days after Thanksgiving? And then, how can I make the time to blog about my new altered fleas?
Well, I figure everything will just come together at the last minute…except maybe for the turkey which needs to be planned well in advance.
In the meantime, I want to take this moment to share my newest painted jewelry box to you, my loyal readers (thanks for sticking with me, by the way!).
Here is the before photo for my latest JB. It’s a beauty.
And here is the after, painted in ASCP in French Linen, Old White and a mix of Benjamin Moore’s Countryside Pink mixed with Old White. Then distressed ever so lightly, and clear waxed. And a quick stencil on the top.
Inside you’ll find six compartments to help organize your jewelry and keepsakes. For a surprise, the sides of the drawers are decoupaged with beautiful complimentary scrapbook paper.
And don’t forget about the large mirror on the underside of the lid.
So what do you think? I’m hoping to sell this along with my other painted JB’s at the upcoming local holiday boutique. I’ll let you know how it goes. In the meantime, if you’re interested in purchasing this gem, leave a comment, and I’ll get right back to you.
