Goodwill Wooden Jewelry Box Upcycle

February 06, 2020

I found this little wooden jewelry armoire at the Goodwill in Bemidji, Minnesota.

It was unfinished, pretty much like new, and was priced at $7.99.

I bet you can't believe that I painted this piece with a bright aqua color!

I have purchased a few brighter paint colors from Dixie Belle Paints recently,including this one, Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in The Gulf. 

I brushed on two coats.

I opted not to distress the jewelry armoire.

I chose to stencil the armoire with Prima Marketing Redesign Stick & Style Stencil 4" Roll - Cornelle Garden.

I purchased my Redesign Stick & Style Stencil Roll at Hobby Lobby.  Hobby Lobby has a few other adhesive roll stencils too at $9.99 each.
Above, I am getting ready to stencil the sides of the little drawers.

This very flexible, adhesive stencil fit easily into tough stenciling areas.

I swirled on my stencil for an opaque look using Dixie Belle Paint in Drop Cloth.

I waxed the armoire with Dixie Belle Best Dang Wax in Clear, a waxing brush and a rag.

The armoire can stand on a dresser or shelf, and has a hanger on the back as well.

So who likes bright paint colors?  Who likes neutrals?

My framed mandala wall art matches the jewelry armoire pretty well!
