Once Boring Run of the Mill Jewelry Box

Introduction: Once Boring Run of the Mill Jewelry Box

About: I'm an outspoken rebel with a heart of gold...I stand up for the voiceless and I live by the motto of paying it forward. I'm a country/hippie chick at heart trying to live a simple life in a big city.

I bought a stand alone jewelry box at my local retail gint and thought to myself, this could use some bling bling....So when I got it home, my rather very handy dandy mate put it together for me and thus began the visions of what can I do to thing to make it appealing....I rummaged through my arts and crafts supply and decided on the now discontinued paint by Martha Stewart textured metallic paint called "hard frost" it's a rough feeling silver paint that has a gritty texture to it. I threw that on with a 3 inch sized all purpose paint brush...added some foam scrapbook decor to the sides and bing bang boom a once boring jewelery box to a eye catching box. took me about 45 min. total from start to finish.
