sweet vintage silverware chest

Happy Friday!!
Yesterday, I stopped off at a local thrift store and brought home this sweet jewelry box silverware chest. (Thank you to Kathy of Kluless for the tip that it could be for storing silverware, which totally makes so much more sense! Silly me.). I have never seen one before, and really liked the detail in the legs, and the scalloped edges. Isn't it cute!
The top opens up and there is a little section piece for necklaces silverware. I have some other plans for this sweet piece! 
 These are the two drawers, and it has the most beautiful brown lining inside...ha, just kidding! So, here is what I have already done...
 I ripped out the inside, and started clearing out all the paper stuck to the wood. I still have the drawers to do, so stay tuned! I'm going to be painting it and covering the inside with vintage wallpaper. I am deciding on a color. What would you do?
 I won a most lovely giveaway from the sweetest Helena of Blondie Blu. Thank you so much Helena for all the pretty gifts!! 
This sweet vintage Doxie pin is what I won in the giveaway! Is he not the cutest!! I am looking forward to showing him off on my cardigans! 

I am making good progress on my granny square blanket. I am loving how it is all coming together! 
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!!

  2. I have never seen a jewelry box that big! The vintage wallpaper is a good idea, I think I might add some old velvet on the bottom for softness.

    Your blanket is coming along nicely...Looks like it is almost finished.

  5. I suspect the jewelry box might actually be a silverware chest but it will make a stunning jewelry armoire! I am anxious to see how you paint it and finish the inside. Yes, I think vintage wallpaper will be a perfect addition.

  8. Hi Heather!
    Oh wow what a fun project! Well, you should definitely redo in your favorite color! I'd maybe do shabby white or even pink! How fun and can't wait to see!
    Happy weekend!

  10. I thought it was kinda big for jewelry ... but then again, I'd need a few of those in order to store all my necklaces, bracelets, earrings ... I can't believe you don't wear jewelry. I don't feel dressed without it. Congrats on all those sweet gifts you won in the giveaway. Your granny blanket is beautiful. Happy weekend wishes, Tammy

  14. I have seen silverware chests, but never on legs, and never having two extra drawers! What a great find that is! Now just load it up with Sterling and you'll be all set. :-)

  23. Looking forward to seeing the transformation on this find. I love finding the scuffed & beaten up pieces to re-fresh & re-purpose. This could be whatever you want...it would make a great jewelry/crafting supplies cabinet...hmm, I need to find one of those.
