|This is a little ceramic jewelry box shaped like a vanity. The front has a|
little drawer detail, and there was a pile of ribbons, flowers, beads, and
lace glued to the top.
|It was a little dirty, but all in all a really good piece... for my dollhouse.|
|The first thing I did was rip off the fake flowers. I'm not a fan of the whole|
genre, personally; therefore, my dolls aren't either.
|The glue was a little more difficult to remove. It was hot glue, so it hadn't|
soaked down into the pores of the porcelain, but it was stuck pretty tight.
I scraped it off with a butter knife. I'd say it took about 10-15 minutes.
|Ta-da! No fake flowers, no glue. Still a little grubby.|
|I mixed up some cleaner with bleach, water, and dish soap and stole a spare|
tooth brush from my son's bathroom. On to scrubbing!
|Most of the dirt and grime came off, and it looks like Snow White approves.|
|I haven't decided yet, but I may paint it. We'll see.|
|For now, it's in the spare bedroom of the dollhouse. We all have a room like|
this, filled with mismatched furniture, somewhat neglected. Maybe this
will be the next room I tackle.
Giveaway update: No one has guessed what I bought at the Nitro Antique shop. I really do have a cool prize for whoever guesses first! Check it out:
|It's a treasure chest pendant!|
|It really opens and closes. Keep your treasures inside and wear them|
everywhere, or take the chain off and use it for your dollhouse.
If no one guesses correctly, I'm keeping it! I'm sure my dolls can use a new box for their goodies. Please guess!!! Post your guesses in the comments or on my Facebook page.
