I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one with this problem….

TOO many accessories, not enough organization space.

Now, I’m just not the “jewelry armoire” type of girl. I just can’t find inspiration in accessorizing unless my accessories themselves look cool. My first task at hand : BRACELETS!

Sadly, this is how they used to be stored. Now awhile back I found this antique tool box at the Dodger Stadium Flea Market. I paid a wopping $1.00 for it! I used to use it to store my small vases, but recently realized this would be the perfect piece for my bracelets!! You first saw this toolbox  here  hard to believe I’m just now getting to it!

The handle is removable with large compartment space on the bottom for storage. I decided to spray paint it white. (Because I’m pretty much obsessed with spray painting anything.)

And voila! Here is how it came together…

Yay! Accessorizing my wrists just got a lot easier!

Is done!
The facelift is complete and it only cost me $5.01! That’s a facelift on a budget if I’ve ever seen one!

*stencil: 1.99
*sponge: 1.35
*paint: 1.67

Total: $5.01
(All purchased from Hobby Lobby)

Its not perfect, but I like it MUCH better than the original seventies worn down wood with gold accents it used to have. Check it out!

And if you are interested in this DIY project here are the easy steps to make it happen:

1. Pick out your stencil. (Make sure it will fit)
2. Pick your paint color. I went with black onyx by the eco friendly soy paint line. Don’t forget a sponge.
3. Prepare your stencil station. Newspaper to paint on, a paper plate to use for your paint and sponge and some tape to hold the stencil.
4. Tape your stencil down where you want the pattern to be displayed.
5. Pour a small amount of paint on your paperplate and blot the sponge in the paint, cover your sponge. Then on a clean area of the plate –  blot of all the extra paint. If you get too much paint it will leak under the stencil.
6. Gently blot your sponge over the stencil.
7. Let dry for 10 minutes then gently remove the stencil.
8. Voila!

This was a fun project 🙂
