A VANITY DRAWER IS UP-CYCLED INTO A PAINTED JEWELRY BOX USING CHALK MINERAL PAINT AND WOODUBEND APPLIQUES
Hi, sweet #sifamily! Today I have an easy DIY to kick off the month and it might just spark some DIY gift-giving ideas!
This is part two of this vintage vanity makeover. I was scratching my head trying to figure out how to upcycle the middle drawer of this vanity and I thought it would be a perfect Painted Jewelry Box!
If you missed the original post on this vintage vanity, here’s what I started with…
And below is the middle drawer I had left-over to repurpose for today’s makeover.
Now it’s a gorgeous painted jewelry box which has two large compartments to hold jewelry and valuables!
What do you think?
I love the lacey pearl top!

HOW TO PAINT A JEWELRY BOX
I started by removing the nails and screws and then giving this piece a super good cleaning with this White Lightning.
To hide the unfinished rough edges, I added WoodUbend Trim. I’ve been using this product a lot lately. It’s so easy to use. These wood appliques glue on with this wood glue and make a HUGE difference in design!!! I heat it up and mold it into the shape of the piece I’m working on. They can be cut to size, sanded, drilled painted, or stained. In the pic below, the bottom is still the rough edge and the top has the WoodUbend trim. Big difference, right?! I have a full WoodUbend how-to tutorial here.
With a craft knife, I cut the square ends to match the existing profile. Then sanded down for a smooth finish.
Once my WoodUbend was all dry, I painted two coats with this Buttercream. A gorgeous creamy white.
To add texture to this flat box, I used Posh Chalk Solly’s Lace Stencil. This is my first time using this large stencil design and I L*U*V it. To create the gorgeous lacey texture with a shimmery pearl effect, I used this Metallic Texture Paste in Pearl. I started spreading it with a plastic putty but found it easier to put a little on my finger and then smooth it over the stencil. It’s more fun hands-on!
Check out how stunning this looks. It gives a raised stencil look with a pearl shimmer. Absolutely gorgeous!
Here’s the finished look. I think it was a great way to upcycle and repurpose this vanity’s middle drawer!
Here’s another look at the before and after…
