There’s a new paint in town friends. She’s pretty, shiny and extreeeeemely sheeny (is sheeny even a word?)

As a lover of all thing painty (…another made up word), I was totally on board with the Extreme Sheen collection from DecoArt. Here’s the cool thing about these metallics: there is an actual patent behind the technology that makes this paint so dang sheeny. There’s that word again. To put this paint to the test, I decided to paint the dullest surface ever and see what Extreme Sheen could do to bring it to life. I’m pretty impressed with the result. I think you will be too.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A round wood box. I picked mine up from Joann.
  • DecoArt Extreme Sheen in 24K Gold
  • DecoArt Matte Decou-Page
  • a piece of scrapbook paper. I went with something that had some gold in it
  • a paint brush
  • a pencil
  • scissors – not pictured
  • small wood beads – not pictured

STEP ONE: 

Paint the lid of the round box. You don’t need to paint the inner portion since we’ll be covering that with paper

STEP TWO

Paint the small wood beads. I find it’s easiest to paint wood beads by threading them onto a piece of wire

STEP THREE

Trace the bottom portion of the wood box onto wrong side of the patterned paper

STEP FOUR

Cut out the tracing, staying about 1/8″ outside the edge to ensure a snug fit into the painted lid.

STEP FIVE

Apply Decou-Page to the lid as well as the back of the paper

STEP SIX

Once you’ve placed the paper into the lid, add another layer of Decou-Page.

STEP SEVEN

Use a hot glue gun to adhere the painted beads to the bottom of the lid. This will create feet on your jewelry dish.

  1. …can I borrow your pineapple earrings?!
    Not bad for raw wood. Can’t wait to see it on a less dull surface!
    And, because I’m nosy, what did you do with the bottom of the box? Will there be a follow up project that uses it?!!

    1. HAHA! Girl, you are too funny! I haven’t come up with a project for the bottom of the box but now I feel like I MUST do it! Stay tuned. I’m gonna start thinking about what I can make with it.
