DIY French Styled Jewellery Box...


From THIS...

 To THIS!

Using THIS...

THIS...

 And THESE!

 After removing the old wooden knobs,
sanding back the old paint...

 The box and drawers were painted in Annie Sloan 'Duck Egg' Chalk paint.
In New Zealand you can buy Annie Sloan chalkpaint online from
Femme De Brocante

 Once the paint was dry I measured a piece of this pretty decoupage paper 
and mod podged (glued) it to the top of the box.

Then painted a layer of mod podge over the top of the paper.

The wood was waxed.
And the shiny new knobs screwed on.
Quite a transformation - 
from that unkind green colour to duck egg blue sweetness.
