Jordan and I are really excited because The 2 Seasons has been featured four times this week in four different blogs with three of our projects. Jordan’s kitchen face-lift was featured Monday here, and Tuesday here. The dining room letters we made were featured here, and a table I updated will be featured here on Friday. We’re trying not to strut too much, but we’re feelin’ pretty proud about this and thought you would like to know. Now on to today’s post.
When China opened its country to foreign travel back in 1979, Mr. Autumn was on one of the first planes into the country. He was able to see it in its primitive state before it became the commercialized giant we think of today.
One of the items he brought home was this little jewelry box.
I have used it a lot over the years to hold some of my jewelry. Unfortunately, it is showing its wear and tear, and not in a good way. The reddish finish on the wood is not very pretty.
The inside has a sweet little lining and little slots for rings. I don’t use it any more, but I wanted to be able to use in a vignette.
I picked out a color from one of our paint samples (I don’t remember which one) and gave it three coats of paint. Then I sprayed it with a glossy polyurethane. Since I painted it, the box has had a home in one of our cabinets….
in the powder room…….
in the kitchen……
and on the side board in the great room.
The paint job isn’t perfect, but it gave my little box a whole new life.
