I found this wooden jewelry box in an antique shop, looking a bit neglected and rather the worse for wear. It was such a sweet design that I decided to snatch it up and give it a shabby French Country style make-over. The wood has been painted a distressed baby blue over gold, and the back and inside lined with palest gold iridescent scrap paper printed with old French advertisements. The bottom drawer was resting too low, so I lined the bottom with a couple of original antique French postcards to give it a little more height. Broken music box gears have been removed from the inside, leaving a tiny bit of extra space behind the bottom drawer, for cash or secret treasures. The top is accented with an original antique ex-voto from Peru, marked "GR", "Gracia Recibida", for graces received, which means the prayer of the supplicant was answered. The ex-voto has been gilded with liquid gold leaf, and adorned with vintage swarovski trim, a dainty solid bronze crucifix, and lush tattered blue silk ribbon (by the inimitable ozmaofodds.etsy.com). Solid bronze floral filigree accents, also gilded with gold leaf, surround the heart, and are studded with the same bezel set swarovski crystals that appear on the milagro. The drawers are also accented with gold leaf and swarovski crystals. The original dark red vintage drawer lining is still intact. A lovely place to keep your rosary, religious medals, and other special treasures. This would make a beautiful and entirely unique special occasion gift. Measures 7.5" tall, 7.75" wide, and 4.75" deep.
