Jewelry box to treasure box

I picked up this really crummy jewelry chest at GW and decided to give it a make-over for granddaughter S's birthday.
I removed the ugly, dirty yellow stuff and replaced it with black felt.
S loves playing dress-up so I washed the jewelry that came with it.
- Before -
- After -
I thought it would look better without the handles on the fake drawer but it didn't. I did put them back on but forgot to take a picture. A simple project and S was happy with her new treasure box!

Oh, I have an ugly jewelry box and never though to up-cycle it like you did. Thank you, thank you!

Jewelry boxes come WITH jewelry already in them at your Goodwill? Wow.
