As you know I love garage sales and Goodwill. In fact it’s eight in the morning and I will be heading out shortly to track down some new treasures.
A few years ago I found a brown “box”. I can’t remember exactly where I bought it but it had to be at one of the two places mentioned earlier. Don’t know its original purpose, but I use it to hold some of my paper jewelry. Gosh, I guess I should post pictures of some of those creations, too. When I can find a way to take good pictures of them, I will. I’ve made so many necklaces you would be astounded. Needless to say I’ve given many of them away as presents.
In fact I have a little ongoing project that involves these necklaces that I will be sure to share with you in the future
Anyway, I didn’t take a picture of the before but just imagine the color “brown”?
So here’s what I did.This is complicated so pay close attention. 🙂
Boy, I really had to thing it through. What step to do when? I painted it with heirloom white.
No pictures of that step. But I think you smart people can probably figure it out. I used a brush and Heirloom White paint by Rustoleum 2x. I added a little calcium carbonate which you can buy on the Internet to make chalk paint.
This picture shows the box after I sanded off some dry paint. Do I need to say, I used sandpaper?
Here are some more pictures of completed project.
Here’s the box with the jewelry.

Crafty girl you are!!!
I prefer “creative”. 🙂 You should see what my hubby and I are creating today. A bench, a ladder “re-do’, and a really cool wall rack with hooks. We can’t find anything we like so we’re building them ourselves. God bless
You are creative. Poor choice of words on my part. Enjoy your day!!😀
Not a poor choice of words, but when I think of “crafty” I think of plastic canvas and tacky little crafts. Having said that, now I have to apologize for my poor choice of words, because that sounded kind of critical. Shame on me. Wait till you see what my hubby and I have created today. Will be posted next week. Enjoy rest of your week-end.
Lol. Can’t wait to see what you two have “created”! Thanks, and you have a great rest of the weekend!!😀
That is really effective and lovely-looking. Well done 🙂
Thanks. I love painting and then taking if off. Seems kind of weird but when I paint pictures, I do the same thing. I think it’s because I do’t get it right the first time so if I scruff it up, no one notices. LOL God bless and have a great Labor Day week-end.
