Renewed Jewelry Box

I found this beautiful wooden carved jewelry box made in India at the Goodwill.  Check out the price.  Yea, it was a little dirty, and needed some cleaning, but that was easy to fix.  
[before]

[after]
A little pledge and elbow grease cleaned it right up and made it as good as new!  Then I had to cover up the inside with some new felt.  I thought turquoise would be the perfect color.  Now it's ready to hold some jewels.  Time to find something old, clean it up, fix it up, and use it again.
