Hello friends!

Since I am giving one away this month and I have done a bunch of these flatware and jewelry box makeovers, I thought I’d round them up into one post.
Easy to find and see all at once.

Old flatware boxes and jewelry boxes are abundant at thrift stores. (might be why I’ve made so many over! ;) ) And they are so much fun to recreate.
They also make the perfect gift once personalized or made over.

So, I hope these will help give you some inspiration for the next time you see one on your thrift store shelf! Or maybe even an old one that you already own.

Flatware & Jewelry Box Makeovers

I’m going to include a few other boxes that may not fall under “flatware or jewelry” but they are boxes so I thought it’d be fun to include them here.

I’ll be back next week with more from my latest haul! (and a little something for summer :) )



  1. Gosh, Nancy…..I LOVE all these boxes! Thank you for putting them all together. You really are quite creative and such an inspiration with your projects. Thank you for the opportunity to win that gorgeous bird box. Just stunning!

  2. Nancy, I love this compilation of boxes! I think my favorite is the jewelry box to writing box. So many beauties.

    1. LOVE these boxes! All of them are beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration! Now I am going to have to go hunting for some to do myself!

    2. You are the box lady! Love them all and especially the etched glass one. Have a great weekend!

  3. Why are boxes so much fun? Maybe because they’re small enough to try out new techniques. Or because they’re a fast project (usually!). And, of course, because they can be used for so many things. So many to love, although the birds may be my all-time favorite.

  4. Hey! Beautiful boxes! Ever think of doing a Christmas box? It’s hot so I’m thinking of Winter already haha!

  5. Dang! You must really love doing those boxes! Do you actually sell these well? I’m not fond of all of them but for sure the majority, especially the floral ones! Nice job and I hope I have that much patience when I start on some of the projects I have!

  6. I cannot believe all the ingenuity and creativeness in one place!!! Good grief these boxes are showstoppers! I love them ALL.

  7. Thank you for sharing all the different styles of boxes. I will have to take the time to watch all the how to instructions. Your bird box reminds me of my mother. She loved birds. It was also the first show of yours that I watched. I’m a new year to your channel. I find your teaching style very easy to watch and learn from. Looking toward a long term relationship in learning techniques from you.
    Thank you

  8. You have such beautiful transfers. Where do you get them? I have a few boxes to makeover and would like to use something like you use.
    thanks for your inspiration. Such beautiful projects.
