Rehabbed Jewelry Box

Because admitting you needed to fix it up is the first step.

Yes, my jewelry box looks like a shoe box. Inside, however, are 4 stacking trays with tiny dividers that keep all of my bling in perfect organized splendor. I've had it for 20 years, and it's absolutely perfect.

On the inside.

The outside, while pretty, wasn't cutting it with the other accessories I've been cranking out for the master bedroom redo, HERE, HERE, and HERE. That and it was looking kind of worse for the wear. Where's my spray paint?
 First, I gave the fabric a good wipe down and trimmed all the ratty frayed threads.
 Then it got light coats of Krylon True Blue on the bottom and Rustoleum Aqua on the lid.
 
Once I had complete coverage...
 ...I broke out the hot glue and ran some aqua ribbon around the lid...
...and glued some of my seaglass, tiny shells, and flat backed marbles on randomly.
There we are, fresh and ready for the new decorating scheme! And all done with stuff I already had too.

We like free, right guys?
