The gold would look great. Perhaps a gold shimmer oil base-apply with a foam brush all over and then surface wipe (lightly) so the gold only stays in crevices. A sign that states “cards” eiter hanging on the inside lid (if you will have it open) or free standing in front of it (?)

Also, use the same gold on the lock part to dress it up a bit more too.


A lovely idea.  And it already looks great.

I like the idea of the gold. Could you perhaps add some flowers to it in your vintage colors?

@MochiBride:  Are you cutting a slit on the top or using it open?

If you are displaying it open, any  treatment of the top will go sight unseen. In that case I would focus on the inside of the chest, and the front of the bottom section. What does the lining look like?

You could string a small garland across the open lid that says cards.

You could cut a strip of wallpaper with a vintage gold pattern and place it across the front of the chest- the part that looks green or blue on my monitor.
