Box Makeover #2 - Hand Painted Jewelry Box



B E F O R E



I decided it would be nice to hand paint this box.  Lavender seems to be on my mind these days, so I chose that colour as a base with flowers on the lid.


Then I decided to seal the paint and used the wrong product and ruined the painting :(.

Back to the drawing board...

Painting #2 turned out like this:




Not quite as charming as the original, but I like it all the same.  And it's a huge improvement over the before shot:
