We found this jewel of a jewelry box at a second-hand store. We marveled at the good shape the drawers were in, the fact that it had a darling, secret compartment, and a functioning music box in the back. The color, however…. we’ll let you see for yourself.
To complete this project you will need the following:
Tools and Materials:
Behr® Chalk Decorative Paint -color Tin White BCP08
A decor piece to be painted (can be a new or old piece)
Behr® Wax Decorative Finish in Dark
Clean rag for wax application
Sandpaper or a sanding block
We love an antiqued, time-worn look, but solid brown just wasn’t doing it for us. Enter Behr@ Chalk Decorative Paint and get ready for the magic to happen.
Step 1: Prepare for painting
Clean your piece free of residual dust, dirt, and grime with a gentle cleaning solution. When dry, lightly sand the piece and wipe free of sanding dust.
Step 2: Paint
Paint your piece in the color of your choice. Yes, you can paint right over the handles! Just be sure to prop them up so they don’t adhere to the piece body. Allow to dry and apply a second coat if necessary/desired.
Step 3: Apply wax
With a rag, apply the wax to your piece. Use a bit more wax over the details and into the corners of the piece to create an antiqued look.
Step 4: Enjoy
Place your now stunning piece in its new home, fill with your treasures, and enjoy.

Chalk Decorative Paint: Jewelry Box Makeover
I love Behr paints!
Woah, never thought to make my own jewelry box but now, considering how great it looks, I will give it a try. I doubt it will look as nice as yours, though.
Hello Eleni, thank you for visiting our blog!
It will come out great as well!
