Altered Trinket Box Junk to Life!

JuNk to LiFe!!

Hi all, firstly I have to apologise that i didn't take a b4 pic :(

This was an old plasticoat marble effect large trinket box which I altered a couple of weeks ago now. It was on one of the boxes that I am currently unpacking for my new studio. So, thought I'd share with you.

I notice some paint I left on the rim OoPs! It was quite quick to do. Its all pretty self explainetory.
I didnt primer the underneath as this would be able to wipe clean if needed or I guess i could of painted and added some feet ...hmm, I may just do that!
To get that gorgeous sparkle layer I added some mod podge and sprinkled glimmer dust. Pics really do it little justice. Will look lovely in the glass unit its intended for.

I hope you like it? it was an item I had picked up from a boot fair some time ago. Think it was about 30p!!

Have fun and keep creative!
