Jewelry Display Cabinet

I didn’t take a picture of this before I got started… argh! I can tell you it was that old, dark brown wood and one of the drawers had a big piece of the bottom edge missing… not sure why…maybe a dog?

I think this piece was originally meant to display small plates, but I’m not sure what the bottom drawers were for? After rebuilding the mangled drawer I spray painted it white (because I thought that was what I wanted) but after it was sprayed I decided it really would look better with a coat of color! The color I decided to use was Old Violet Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, which is a pretty blue / purple.

I removed the back and painted the rest of the cabinet with two coats of Old Violet.

I lightly distressed the edges so that the white would peek through. I then sealed the paint with Clear Annie Sloan wax, buffed it with 0000 steel wool and polished it with a soft cloth.

This piece has a lot of great lines to it!

And I just adore the little drawers with the porcelain knobs.

I added this great paper to the back to give it some additional interest and texture!

I didn’t put any hooks in it, just in case someone wanted to use it for something other than jewelry display… but I think it would be so cute with mismatched teacups with earrings hanging of the edges and rings or bracelets inside of the teacups… There really are a lot of possibilities for this piece!

It’s not a keeper, but I think it will find a loving home, what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by…

Until next time!
