I started by cleaning the top glass, the mirror and the bottom glass (it was really dirty!)
Unfortunately there was no way to disassemble the lid without totalling ruining it so all I could do was cover it with floral paper (it slid under the wooden frame rather easily).
Next I tucked some floral trim into the groved frame and added an old photo of my Great-Grandmother Alice...isn't she beautiful? Love this picture...she even made the wonderful feathered hat she's wearing (I hear she was quite the seamstress)
Lastly, I took the cardboard off the bottom (it was held on with a few old nails so I removed a few from one side and slid the cardboard out from under the remaining nails.) I tucked a piece of blue patterned paper under the nails then replaced the cardboard bottom and replaced the nails.
And that's it!
Another trash to treasure goodie.
