Floral Green Jumbo Jewelry Box

  Jewelry boxes are such fun pieces to work on, they are like mini dressers but you can add more character. This jumbo treasure chest was the perfect backdrop for the newly released dewy morning  Dixie Belle transfer  over a favorite blue green tide pool  Dixie Belle silk mineral paint .

Wall Mirror Formerly A Dresser Mirror

 


Upcycled dresser mirror to share with you done in a soft green, white and silver. 


I try and give as many pieces new life when I can and these dusty old dresser mirrors waited patiently for their turn. They were in great reflective condition and the rectangular shape worked to use on a wall or as a childs standing mirror. One mirror has already been reloved in purple and silver and found its forever home.


After a good wipe down and cleaning of the glass the center design was removed. I then put slick paper under the edges and painted on a coat of tide pool Dixie Belle silk mineral paint.


On this one I wanted to try a raised design on the top edge. The tea towel floral Dixie Belle stencil was my choice to go with the existing corner appliques.


For the raised texture I used white Dixie Belle mud applied with an offset spatula.


And this was the design once stencil lifted. It was left to dry well overnight.


The next day I lightly sanded the design with a Dixie Belle sanding sponge to remove and pointy peeks then painted it all a second coat of tide pool green silk mineral paint.


On the lower edges I used a design from the delicate lace Dixie Belle silk screen stencil applying whitecap silk mineral paint with a Dixie Belle Artist Brush. I also used this brush and white color to paint the wooden and mud texture designs at the top.


To add a bit of shimmer and shine silver Dixie Belle Gilding Wax was applied over the white designs with my fingertip.


I am not sure if I love the white/silver detailing but it is super easy to paint over!
