Wretchid to Dainty

Oh my goodness! 
I found the ugliest and chintziest looking jewlery box at the thrift store. 
Only .50 cents.
It is heavy and I knew it had potential. 
But after I bought it, it has just sat in my "to do" pile. 
I kept looking at it and lost all hope that it would ever be pretty!

(Enter my sister Sharla!)
"Hey Bonnie, let's do something fabulous with this!"
Me "Be my guest. I got it for a good deal but now wonder what I was thinking!"
So she snatched it up and rummaged through my spray paint bin.

She pulled out this luscious berry pink color!  
(Oh I do love that one)
Then she took the jewelry box outside and started to revamp it.
Of course, I forgot to get a picture of the whole thing before she redid it. 
But you will get the idea from the below picture!
(I'm cringing)
 Pretty nasty huh?
But after a coat or two of this luscious spray....
 And some Rub n' Buff ...
(click on Rub n' Buff to go straight to the site. A little tube goes a LOooooNG ways)
which is a fantastic way to add some pizazz.

You get a beautiful and dainty finished project! 

Thanks Shar! 
My girls are going to love!!!
