Embellished Hat Box

by - February 09, 2015

I picked up a bunch of these round hat boxes for $1 from our local thrift store last week.  I gave my 7 year old one to use for his toys and I started making over this one over the weekend.

First I painted it grey using Annie Sloan chalk paint.
I know, you can barely tell but the paint is there.
I hot glued some vintage lace around the bottom and the lid.  The French graphic is from the Graphics Fairy - it's one of my faves.  I printed it onto vintage sheet music and glued that to the top.
I finished up by adding a fabric flower and BINGO number.

I have two more to go!

  1. Very pretty. It reminds me of a hat box swap I did a year or so ago. That was fun to decorate and put together so I'm sure you had fun pulling embellishments out for this box.

  2. Love your hat box! What a bargain! You've combined two of my favorite things, vintage sheet music and French graphics!!

  3. LOVE your round box. Such a pretty storage or keepsake box. I love to paint and accent boxes too. Yours is really unique. So Paris chic!! Great to have found 7 at the thrift store.
    Happy Creating!

  4. What a great up-cycle, Jeanine! You always create the loveliest things! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!
