DIY- Custom Jewelry Box

I bought a storage/jewelry box awhile back with the intention of giving it a makeover for my daughter.  I found this box at target in the clearance aisle. Here is the before.

It’s a simple box with lid, but the colors they offered were too bright. I decided to make it over with colors matching my daughters nursery; coral & grey.

First step was to tape off the section where I wanted to add a subtle contrast.

Then I got my paint out and mixed a Lowes Valspar sample with some white paint to lighten it up.

On to painting… I started with the base.

Then I painted the top. I probably added 2 full coats with 1 extra round of touch ups.

Next the fun part, stenciling; at least I thought this before I did it!  I think I found this stencil at Hobby Lobby.  I taped it down where I wanted the pattern.

Here’s the after, as you can see it got a little messy in some areas.

I touched this up by hand. Here’s it cleaned up, so much better!

After I finished the box, I moved on to prepping the contrast area.  As you can see its still lime, this was previously taped off earlier.

Now its a pretty coral.

Well that’s it! Hopefully she’ll keep for many years to come.

I love the transformation don’t you?

Till next time… Enjoy!
