Upcycled vintage jewelry chest using mixed media techniques

Another up cycling project by using a thrifted vintage box and giving it a makeover. Embellishments are from the dollar store, and the flower are from the Pretty Pale collection by Prima Marketing.

This teal/turquoise, shabby chic and vintage project will be used as a card box containing our messages to one of my friends. She is getting married this summer and we wanted to leave our advices and best wishes to her in a surprise bridal shower.

In this video, you will be seeing the use of a cosmetic sponge instead of a brush to paint the whole canvas. It is a great way to avoid streakiness that brushes tend to leave when the paint dries.


from Dollarama (dollar store)
