The Two S's

Spray paint and sand paper ... sometimes that's all a girl needs to get her through the day.

And projects like these.

I had this vintage jewerly box that I always loved. I had it sitting on a bookcase, just for decor. I decided to shabby chic-it and try to sell it on Etsy. It started out like this ...
And looked like this, after a couple coats of Krylon Almond.
Then I decided to sand it a little around the edges.
What do you think? I was very pleased with how it turned out.
Please visit my Etsy shop soon, if you haven't been already. I found some great items this weekend - some are already for sale! I'll also be posting about them later this week.

Hope you had a great start to your week ... see you tomorrow!


  1. Shut up!! I just spray-painted almost the exact same jewelry box today!! I got mine at Goodwill and I painted it pink and distressed it! I'll be posting mine later this week or next. Too funny!

  2. Beautiful re-creation.
    Have a lovely week. TTFN ~ Marydon
