My Grandma used to be a Avon lady and a couple years before she passed away she gave me all her old costume jewelry along with her old jewelry box. I found many treasures! The jewelry box was in bad shape (I had taken a before picture but I think I lost it when my computer died). At one point it had been painted a cream color. I wanted to keep it because it used to belong to Grandma so I decorated it up!
So of course I started by painting it white. I had seen a starfish decoration similar to what I created in a magazine and that is where I got my inspiration. I love the beach, and Grandma loved the beach (and actually lived at the beach) so the beachy look was perfect. I painted and glittered the starfish, adding pearls, and crystals and a brooch from my Grandma.
I think of Grandma every time I see it.
