Small Glove Box~ Lacey Redesign

If you have followed me for awhile~
you know I love to redesign vintage glove boxes.

This one was a great little find.
A bit smaller then the others I have found in size and shape,
but perfect  to work with.

In good condition and ready for paint right over the vintage vinyl surface.

So I proceeded to paint this one inside and out in my favorite lace color chalk paint by folk art.

Then with bits of vintage  lace,
I covered the surface inside and out.

To the lid, I painted faux leaves in a creamy white
and add another layer of vintage doilies.

Placing the fabric roses, leaves and trims in decorator cake like fashion,
is pure joyful play.
Romance in shades of white~~~

Pearls, silk flowers, and a few rose gems grace the top.

Inside is lined with more lace and trims, silk flowers and edging.

Fabric flowers in shades of whites and creams for a tone on tone style.
Like icing a cake, perfect for a wedding or anniversary gift.

Beautiful to store treasured peals or a few hankies, vintage gloves or love letters.
For the dreamer in us all.

Lastly, lace edging all around and this pretty is complete
and ready to fill the shelf in my Etsy shoppe.

It is amazing what a little paint and lace can do.
Do you have a glove box to cover?
It's so much fun.
Give it a try.
if you have a fabric  glove box, well, you can paint right over that surface too
or let the color show through the lace for a little style change.

Thanks for stopping by
and welcome to new followers.
So nice to meet you.
See you soon.

Speaking of Anniversaries,
I'll be off for a bit, celebrating my 41st wedding anniversary.
See you when I return.

Wishing you Southern DayDreams
