I had a container of custom mint chalk paint leftover from my Dated Jewelry Box Now Pretty In Mint and I needed to use it up. I had just enough to complete this Mint Vintage No. 9 Jewelry Box.
Here is what it looked like before...
I forgot to take a picture before removing the hardware. This one has enough storage for both the Mr. & Mrs (at least in our house being one who doesn't wear a lot of jewelry).
Normally I paint the hardware too but decided to keep the original finish because it paired well with the gold No. 9 stencil detail on the top. This is the Americana Decor Stencil I used (*affiliate link) and Gold Paint color (*affiliate link).
Normally I would distress the edges with sandpaper but this time, I went for a more clean and polished look. The paint was protected with clear wax applied with a lint free rag.
I'm surprised by how many projects I've painted Mint Chalk Paint (*affiliate link) considering it is not a color I normally gravitate towards. The biggest reason is because the vinyl siding on our house is mint and I cringe every time I pull into the driveway. Unfortunately, replacing siding has not been in our budget so the ugly mint house on the street remains.
It all started with the Mint Dining Room Hutch I painted for a client.
I'd love to hear what you think of the color Mint. Love it or leave it?
