There are so many old jewelry cabinets in thrift stores or sold at garage sales. Different styles I keep as jewelry cabinets while others make great small curio cabinets. I've finished two jewelry cabinets recently with an Edgar Allan Poe theme. The first one is Edgar Allan Poe / Raven themed the second one is a custom order for a Tall-Tale Heart / Raven theme.
I often find these cabinets which are perfect for repurposing into Gothic style curio cabinets. This one is a apothecary / potion bottle theme. I thought it would be perfect to hold small perfume bottles.
I found these two pieces at garage sales recently. I can't wait to make them over. I think the carriage will be stunning with a Gothic look painted black and different fabric added to the inside. And the clock will have a full makeover with a scene or skull of some sort in the glass enclosed portion.
