Due to the “The Great Ear Piercing Event of 2017,” (see previous post here) Presley and I thought that a jewelry box would be great birthday present for Peyton this year. We started our search several weeks before Peyton’s birthday and we were very disappointed in what we found. Everything was either too small, too expensive, or too ugly. We didn’t know what to do. We finally visited our local craft store to see if there was something we could make for her. We found an unfinished wooden box with 4 drawers that was about 12″ x 6″ x 6″.
We removed the drawers and painted the base green (her favorite color), then added two coats of clear sealant for protection.
We removed the hardware from the drawers.
Then we re-opened the holes for the hardware with a bamboo skewer.
We painted the drawers with 2 coats of clear sealant, then reattached the hardware. Here’s a finished drawer.
