Christmas Gift Project

I know Christmas is over , but I couldn’t show you this before because it was a gift for my daughter , and she does occasionally read my blog.

It is a jewelry box made from an old silverware box . The inside was in great shape so I just left that alone.


I painted it white and distressed it , then added sheet music a doily some pictures of her parents , grandparents , a two of her great grandmothers and an old broken pocket watch that is set to the time she was born .


Yes the picture in the middle on the right is her Dad and I on our wedding day . My Mom and Dad above and his below.

I added a little more lace , a rosette and a tiny key charm .



This will hold a lot of jewelry , or I suppose she could always put silver in it .

Anyway I was pleased with how it turned out , and the best part was …


I am going to try to make some more similar to this to sell . Do you think they will sell ?

I am going to link this with Faded Charm and White Wednesday.
