I may or may not have an obsession with jewelry. Okay, I’ll just admit it. I love jewelry. I am always collecting (and making) new earrings, necklaces and bracelets. So, I needed an easy (and big) way to store all my jewelry. Drum roll, please. Here’s what I made!
So, I found this cabinet at the local thrift store…only it was SO UGLY. So, I painted it black and spruced it up. (It desperately needed some excitement.) So, of course I pulled out the Mod Podge and my favorite black and white designed paper and went to work.
But that wasn’t good enough for me.
I also Mod Podged the inside! (The husband thinks I’m insane.) I thought it would be fun if each of the drawers had their own design. Eventually I’m going to make some labels for them, I just haven’t got around to it yet.
I wish I had before and after shots of this project, but just take my word for it … it looks much better now.
- Mod Podge
- Scrapbook Paper
- Jewelry Cabinet
Total Cost: $50
So, there you have it. Seven fun and easy things you can do with Mod Podge.
Oh, and in case you were wondering what my next craft project is…well, take a look at this UGLY table I found at the thrift store yesterday for $5. Five dollars! I couldn’t resist it.
My husband asked me why I bought such an ugly table. Obviously he doesn’t have the vision, but I can see great possibilities with this table. This weekend I’m pulling out my paint and Mod Podge and going to work. Don’t you think it’ll be a great corner table? Just imagine it black…with some cute embellishments. I can hardly wait to get crafting! Wish me luck!
