Upon reading this post via A Beautiful Mess, I was inspired to try a little jewelry box makeover of my own. I thought about repainting it and adding polka dots or stripes but I wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary. That's when I came up with this record player idea!
What you'll need:
- old jewelry box
- hot glue
- spray paint (your color of choice)
- black spray paint
- construction paper (red and white)
- wooden dowel
- prescription bottle tops
- empty ribbon spool
Sand the rough parts of your box before painting. Depending on what your jewelry box looks like, this step might not be necessary.
Primer and then spray paint the box the color of your choice. I chose silver.
Decide what items you will use for the top. I chose to use items from around my house, including: half of a clothespin, a wooden dowel, half of a ribbon spool, and a couple of prescription bottle caps.
Primer and spray paint these items. I chose to paint them black.
Once your ribbon spool is dry, add construction paper circles using glue to make it look like a record. I used a tiny black paper circle from a hole punch for the center.
Hot glue everything to the top of your box and you're all set!
