Vintage Jewelry Box Makeover with Peacock Design

Do you ever find inspiration in the weirdest spots? I know I’m a rare sort, but I do love to share with you my whimsical ways. I was out shopping at the thrift store, which I rarely have time for, and found this vintage jewelry box.

Initially, I felt sort of sorry for it. It was so simple and plain, though I do enjoy simple. However, when you open it up, it’s like BAM!

Beautiful blue! One of my favorite colors, so you know, of course, I had to bring it home. As I’ve mentioned many times in the past, I love to find wood items that still have potential. I can’t wait to dress this one up. You can see what I’ve done to create jewelry storage in these past posts.

DIY TIME

First, I wanted to make sure the surface was free and clear of any residue and debris. I used a vinegar water mixture (1:2 ratio) to wipe it down. Then, I begin my fun. eep! To create a base layer, I use a similar color to the interior I had on hand to paint the vintage jewelry box.

Then, after the base layer of paint cures, I add a layer of metallic blue to the top and middle section.

Next, I took artistic license and got lost in my fun. When I originally saw that blue, a peacock came to mind. So, a peacock is what I paint…

I won’t say I have much more to share about my DIY steps because I got lost in my work. Do you ever do that? I sure hope so…it’s wonderful! However, I’m excited to share the after with you.

I debated on what to add to the side band, but settled on a feather motif. I think it suits it.

    How fun! The top is lovely but the feathers on the side really make it. Can’t wait to see what you do with the chair. I have a rocker similar to it and have been struggling to make a decision about it. Looking forward to some Larinspiration!

    Just getting ready to paint an old silverware chest using a stencil, but then I saw this post. I’ll try to copy your design, but only hoping to be as creative as you were. Love this piece and it’s so different1
    thanks for sharing this!

      aww…Becky, that just made my day. Hooray for ditching the stencil! 😀 Have fun with it…really!

    Hi Larissa! You are quite the artist. I can paint but i cannot even draw stick people right. So pretty.

  7. ColleenB.~Tx. says

    What you have done to that jewelry box is absolutely stunning. Love the peacock. You done a beautiful job.
    I had found a box very much like that a few weeks ago and a thrift store. (square corners on mine)
    Wasn’t a jewelry box but it was a box that was a perfect fit to hold our family Bible in.

    • Larissa says

      Thank you, Colleen. I love those kinds of boxes too. What a treasure you have!

  8. ColleenB.~Tx. says

    Showed hubby your beautiful art work and he couldn’t stop saying; “WOW” and from WOW, he went to. A M A Z I N G!

    • Larissa says

      That really brought tears…thank you! I truly enjoy creating and sharing my work. Give him a hug for me! 😀
