Dollar Store Jewelry Box


Last week I came across this little jewelry box at the dollar store. (It was actually $2 but still a good deal!)

In anticipation of my dresser makeover (exactly when this makeover is taking place is still TBD...) I decided to paint the box a lovely shade of blue!

It's a wee bit darker than I was going for. That's what you get when you paint at 2am with just a table lamp! But it's a lovely shade nonetheless. Once the dresser is painted, maybe I'll tweak the colour of the jewelry box. For now, it'll do a great job of keeping my jewelry in one place as opposed to being scatter all over my room (and bathroom).

I had a faux mohair fabric sample that I cut to size and put on the bottom for a nice cushion-y liner! I LOVE mohair. If only it was real....One can pretend. =)

I love the clasp! The little "brass" details are the reason why I bought it.

Not bad for $2! I wish it came in a variety of sizes. I would love to have a tiered stack of these on my dresser!

I'm going to the States this week! Just a short day trip. I'm SO excited to stop by Hobby Lobby and Joann's. Target is also a must. Can't wait to get me some triple chocolate m&m's! Can you believe we don't get these here in Canada?! Boo....


Hope you're all having a great week!
