I don’t remember when I picked up this jewelry box at Goodwill, but I know it had been cruelly robbed of both its drawers and its dignity, for which reason, it needed rescuing:
While thinking about how to alter it, I did what I often do: I changed its orientation.
Once I did that, I knew I had a very cool mail sorter on my hands – which turned out to be fortuitous, since I broke our mail sorter two weeks ago when I accidentally knocked it on the floor. BUMMER. In true “Living with Art” spirit, however, I knew I could make something even more amazing AND use it as an excuse to include more art in my house. Here’s the journey:
It’s so fancy and pretty now that I’m debating whether to keep it or list it in my shop. Either way, it’s a very fun project, should you ever find a little jewelry cabinet or a whatnot shelf to rescue for yourself!
