I got this two small chests and I thought I make them into jewelry chests. The smaller one will be for the rings and the bigger for other stuff. This is how they look when bought and when I painted them I unscrewed the hinges and lock thing so they don´t get paint on them.
The big one here I painted with a lilac pinkish color and then white. Then I sanded it down so the pink showed through. The lid I painted some small flowers for decor.
Now to the small one. this one is painted just like the frame I did here: just that I had pink on top. Here I did some flowers to on the lid and than I gone over them with a pearl pen/ glue.
