Stephanie from Crafting in the Rain used Full Bloom with Pocket Watch metallic cream to give this jewelry box a fun, girly look. Isn’t it fabulous?!

Sometimes I just like to wander through the thrift store to see what is begging to be painted that day. That’s how I found this jewelry box. It looked pretty boring just sitting there on the shelf. So of course I brought it home with me.

I used Full Bloom (chalk paint) to paint 3 coats on all the outside parts of the jewelry box. Inside there is some felt lining, so naturally none of that got painted. The drawers came out and the knobs were easy to unscrew, so it wasn’t difficult.

Once the paint was completely dry I decided to glam it up a bit by adding some Pocket Watch metallic cream around all the edges with a foam brush. It gives it such a pretty shimmer everywhere I brushed it on. Do you like it with the gold on it or would you prefer it to have a regular distressing with the dark box showing through?

I gave the jewelry box to my daughter and she was pretty excited to have such a fancy place to keep her necklaces and earrings.

Hi, I’m Stephanie Paxman. My husband and our 3 kids live in the Pacific Northwest (that’s where the “Crafting in the Rain” name comes from.) It’s beautifully green here, but that means it rains a lot too. I’ve been blogging since 2011 about everything from kids crafts to home décor to DIY. I love chocolate, and color. I hope my projects give you some good ideas!
