While at Michael's the other evening, I picked up a cheap wooden box and decal. This afternoon I enjoyed the sunshine on my porch and painted a cute little jewelry box.
Step 1: Remove the hinged clasp and fill with wood putty. Allow the putty to dry and sand it down. You may also need to give the box a sand down.
Step 2: Add your wooden decal using wood glue. If you plan to paint the box, you may want to paint the top before adding the decal. I didn't do this and found it challenging to paint around the design.
Step 3: Prime and paint the box. I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and was able to skip the primer.
Step 4: Distress, wax, glaze, protective finish, etc.
Step 5: Line the bottom with decorative paper or felt.
Such a pretty little box.
