My BeJeweled Marie Antoinette Cabinet









Oh my little Marie Antoinette cabinet, or at least that is what I call it....
I picked up this darling little curio cabinet at a second hand shop. I sure wish I had the before picture, but you know.... that was before I became a blogger! ugh
It was all white. I just added pink paint, a little distress, lots of vintage cluster earrings and a few rhinestone pins,
easy peasy!
I just love it!

Jacqueline said...

Oh, I am just sick! I gave away a little wall curio because it didn't fit my style anymore and I could have made a treasure like this. This is out of this world!! I saw a huge full length mirror in Hawaii all blinged out like this, of course it wasn't for sale, but yours reminds me of it. Thanks for sharing this jewel.
