I love searching for hidden treasures in antique and thrift shops. I found this little gem at our local Goodwill shop. As you can see, it was a little worse for the wear. But, I saw potential 🙂
I wanted to paint any areas that would be exposed and not covered with paper a dark midnight blue. But, alas, I didn’t have the right color paint. Joanna, my DIL, to the rescue!! She had the perfect shade of nail polish–and it worked great. You can see the nice shiny finish on the top edge of the finished trinket chest.
The next step in the transformation was measuring and cutting the Belgian Chocolate Glitter cardstock and Brilliant Brown Glitter chipboard. Then I repaired the sad, broken drawer and glued the papers in place.
While waiting for the glue to dry, I searched through my stash of beads to find something to use in place of the original drawer pulls. The beaded pulls were glued in place using Glossy Accents.
All the edges were lightly distressed by running the edge of a scissor blade along the corners. These distressed edges were inked with Chestnut Roan fluid chalk ink by ColorBox.
I’m very pleased with the results, and now I have the sweetest ever little trinket box to grace my workspace.
