Jewelry Box Revamp

Black Box, Black Dog, Purple Box...



Everything looks better in PURPLE
My doggie is black.

Because my doggie was such a good sport about allowing me to photograph him in mid pee, I allowed him to watch me work some paint magic on a tired jewelry box that I picked up at Goodwill for three bucks.


Don't let that bored look fool you. He was daydreaming about what color he wants his dish to be painted, hoping I would not make it too girly. There might have been a stray thought, or two of why I follow leash laws, and the neighbors don't, but that's a story for another day. Yep, my doggie was in the driveway, and not going anywhere without me. Just in case anyone is worried, I didn't spray close to where his lungs would be polluted with paint.

Trying to be all artsy, I positioned the mirror to reflect the tree. Oh, so pretty!!!


Then, wondering if anyone was watching, thinking it is bad enough she runs around her yard in Pillsbury Dough Boy pajama bottoms, but now she is becoming one with a dog. No, no, not in that way, you sickos. I was just flat on my stomach, capturing the doggie's view.


After a few coats of pretty purple spray paint on the box, and silver paint on the pulls, I had a pretty place for bits, and baubles...whatever that means. Now I can't stop repeating it aloud. Yikes!

 Looking prettily purple in its new home.

Just kidding...

  1. LOL! Loved this post, the purple jewelry case, and the purple pooch. Reminds me of the Bond movie, "Goldfinger." Only your pup is a lot cuter than the woman who got painted gold.

  3. That's a pretty remake of the jewelry box! And I love the bits of humor you scattered in, with your "artistic" reflected trees pictures and purple dog. That's my kind of craft post!

  14. Ha, ha, when I first started reading I thought you were going to paint you dog purple too. I was releived that it was only the box. Which turned out so pretty. I had a purple bedroom growing up as a teen. Oh how I loved it! Sure glad doggy only got made purple in a pic. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
    Hugs,

    In the first picture of the jewelry box open, I thought, 'aw, the trees look so nice,' and then I continued reading, and I laughed. :)
