What Have you Mod Podged Lately? Fun Friday #1

What have you Mod Podged lately?

What I needed
storage for my make-up.
I didn't need too much storage, since I like to change my looks every so often.
I switch out my eye shadows and lip glosses quite a lot.

What I found
an old WHITE jewelry box with drawers and a mirror for $6.99 at Goodwill

What materials I used
Mod Podge
nail file (for cutting extra paper off the edges)
paper cutter
foam brushes
silver paint
scrapbooking paper

How I made it
The top of the jewelry box was the easiest to do.
I traced the top on my scrapbooking paper & cut it a little bit smaller.
I applied a thin layer of Mod Podge to the top of the box, a thin layer on my paper, and applied the paper on the top. I also applied another layer of Mod Podge over the paper once it was on.

I followed the same steps for the sides using dark brown paper.
The drawers were harder to do, since the knobs don't unscrew. How disappointing was that? Actually, I knew this before I purchased the box. I just thought I could cut around it. Well... the knobs are wider on the outside and skinnier where it attaches to the drawers. I guess I couldn't trace and cut. I just estimated where to cut half circles, and Mod Podged away.

I painted the knobs silver.

This was fun! I don't do a lot of Mod Podge projects, but I think I will now.
I'm sure my husband will be glad not to have to see all my make-up all over the counter top.
I hope you like this project too!
