diy jewelry box

Here is a little jewel I found at Value Village for $6. It's a solid brass jewelry box with a glass top.

 



It's no doubt old, not sure what age but I thought of my friend Candice when I seen it.   She adores jewelry boxes especially the ones we find at estate auctions.  I grabbed it and came up with an idea to personalize it for her....decoupage a map of one of her favorite places she has traveled too.


I found a printable map of the island of St. Kitts and Nevis online at wikimedia (totally worth checking out!), sized it up to fit inside the box, printed it on glossy paper, and glued it down with Mod Podge.


After 24 hours I applied a top coat of Mod Podge and a second coat 24 hours later.  A total of 2 top coats to protect the image from any wear and tear it will get over the years. Here it is, simple as that!


Happy DIY'ing!
