oldies but goodies

I have been collecting old jewelry boxes for a bit of a project. I have found some at yard sales and thrift stores.None of them cost more than a couple dollars. These are a few of the collection. The blue one was in bad shape on the outside but the inside was in tact, best of all it was lined in a hot pink velvet. The second one down had old stickers glued to it and some of the paint was chipped. The last one is actually from Target from a couple years ago.The project was to revamp them for use in some of my parties.This is what I came up with:



I new this one had to be based on the Glass Slipper Ball. So I added a figurine, some paint and some glitter and bippity boppity boo we have a smashing little jewelry box.





















This next one is probably my favorite. Although I can't take credit for the Fairy (I also found her at a thrift store)I am really happy with how it turned out.






















Finally my sleeping beauty inspired jewelry box. Sure it's dreamy but it just doesn't feel like a party without the other two fairy godmothers. Guess I will have to hit some yard sales next week!

Oh my gosh!!! Those look really cute! You never cease to amaze me. Those are awesome ideas and I love how you can take something that looks trashed and transform it into something new. You trully have a vision for something even if it looks as if it can't be salviged. Keep up those amazing brain cells working, I know they never stop: D
Luv you,
Chris

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your jewelry boxes are way too cute! Have you ever thought of using old silverware boxes? My aunt gave me her silver in this neat looking box and I revamped it into a jewelry box. Thanks for sharing your creativity!
