Shadow Box to Jewelry Organizer Project

I was in Marshall's the other day and found this really cute shadow box complete with shabby chic paint and padded fabric on the inside.  I instantly thought of the jewelry organizer I have been wanting to make, so I put it in my cart.


 

 Now that I am home, I am realizing that the pretty white color is not going to show up on my white bedroom walls.  And, the box is a little beat up, so I need to find away to cover the scratches. I could paint it, maybe a robin's egg blue? Or....


...I could cover the sides in paper and use mod podge.  I really like the graphic look of the white vines on the green paper.  If I covered it in paper, I would leave the front alone, or I could paint it green to match.  What do you think?  I would really love some feedback before I start this project, so please leave a comment and let me know what you would do?  Paint or Paper, or something else?

  1. I have that same paper for a project of my own. However...I think just paint...so you can see the detailing on the front. You can distress it a bit, so that it goes with that cool interior. If you just do the paper on the sides, it is still going to blend into your walls looking straight on.

    1. I think your right. If I papered the sides, I would still need to paint the front. What's your project with the paper?
