This little vintage sewing box was cute, but dated. And, other than being functional for the sewer, it wouldn't get much attention sitting in a corner.
It was dull on the outside, but dazzling in red on the inside! It even had a pin cushion on the lid & a few notions left behind.
It needed a little color on the outside to match the bright personality it had on the inside. So, I painted the sewing box with the color, Kudzu, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.
A little paint makes all the difference!
Adding a little Best Dang Wax from Dixie Belle helps all the detail stand out.
I first covered the piece with clear wax, then added brown wax. I put the brown wax on heavy with a wax brush, then wiped away the excess with a rag. The clear wax makes it easy to wipe away the excess brown wax.
Adding the wax makes a big difference!
This little sewing box went from boring to beautiful in a few easy steps.
