DIY Painted Jewelry Box

This Painted Jewelry Box is a sponsored post on behalf of U-CAN. I was sent samples of BiriBiri products to review and was compensated for my time to write this post. All opinions expressed are my own and not influenced in any way.

I’m so super excited today. Today’s project is a special one. You see, my family is all over the map. I have family in Venezuela, Colombia, Canada, USA, Spain, Brazil, Costa Rica.I could go on and on on this topic. But right now, we have my in-laws visiting us and I won’t be with my mother in law by Mother’s Day so I decided to make something for her in advanced. I made this super cute painted jewelry box since I know she loves jewelry and all kind of accessories.

I was trying to decide how to decorate it and I realized I still had a BiriBiri Kit left and thought it would be a great use for it. I also tried lettering too, which I had never done before and to be my first time it didn’t go that bad LOL.

The grape design was a bit larger than the box, but still with a few tweaks I made it work and I LOVE the final result! It turned out SO pretty. Of course I had my hubby’s hands helping this time and I’m sure that made it all much better! He’s always up for projects that involve wood and paint. LOL

So, Let’s see how to make this pretty Painted Jewelry Box, shall we?

Supplies:

  • BiriBiri Washi and Kit
  • Wooden Jewelry or tea box {from craft store that doesn’t have any paint or decoration}
  • White Mate Spray Paint
  • Sand paper
  • Ribbon
  • Felt
  • Glue or hot glue gun {I used UHU glue this time}
  • Scissors and pen

First disassemble the box.

Sand off any imperfection you might see.

Protect the table or surface where you are going to paint the box.

Start spraying following spray instructions. Because my box was made with MDF wood, it absorbed a lot of paint, which required about 3 to 4 coats. Since this paint dries really fast it didn’t take too long though.

The parts that absorb paint the most are the edges. After the first coat is dry, sand a bit and then proceed with the second coat. For some reason it made it all easier.

Apply as many coats as you like to get the expected result. Each paint is different so, you might need only 2 or maybe even more coats than I did. The trick is to keep and eye and stop when you are happy with the covering.

We painted even the inside and the separators.
