Boy, I just noticed that I have not posted anything in awhile. Sorry about that. I have been busy working on a few new projects and thought I should go ahead and share one of them with you.
Isn't it beautiful?! Yah, right! Here is the before pic of a jewelry box that I found and am currently working on. Actually it didn't look this bad when I got it. I stripped all the hardware off and started sanding on it when I remembered I forgot to take a before pic. It will be, of course, a Halloween themed box hand painted in orange and black with some gold and green accents. I replaced the glass with a panel made out of polymer clay. I am also adding a light to the back that will light up the panel. I ripped out the old yucky fuzzy lining in the drawers and will reline them with a nice black corduroy material. This box also came with a wind up musical movement that I will be replacing with a new one. I would also like to make a piece of jewelry to go with it, I am still trying to decide. It is almost completed, I am just adding the finishing touches. I hope to have it ready to list in a few days. I should have some better pics for you then!!
