How to Refurbish a Small Jewelry Box

Paint and apply any embellishments to personalize the jewelry box.

Before painting, cover any areas of the jewelry box, such as the inside of the jewelry box or any non-removable glass, with paper and painter's tape.

Select a color to paint the jewelry box. For this project, I used a primer and paint combination spray paint suitable for wood. If you don't have a combination paint, first apply a primer. After the primer dries, apply the paint. Remember, apply the primer and paint in thin even coats to prevent runs.

Let the paint completely dry (may take overnight, depending on the type of paint used) and then reassemble the jewelry box.

Add additional embellishments or details as you wish and start using the jewelry box to store jewelry or prepare to give as a gift.
