Yup, I got milk; and cream too!
At least according to my latest project I do.
I found this cute little side table at a thrift shop for $10. Forgot to take a before picture, but she was just a dark brown.
From the moment I spied her I thought, “this girl has style”.
Love her legs and twisted design!
This weekend I gave her a coat of white paint and sanded her gently. I then decided to try the Modge Podge transfer method. I know, I’m a little slow. A lot of you have been doing this.
I have wanted to try it, but have never taken the time till now.
Most of you will know how, but in case you don’t, here’s what I did.
I printed the design from my Print Outs Pinterest Board with our regular ink jet printer, (Don’t forget to reverse the image or your words will be backwards). I have read that you will get truer colors if you use a laser. .
I wanted a time worn look so decided that it probably wouldn’t matter.
Just cut around your image with just a little paper edging and apply Modge Podge to the front side of it. Place on the wood and gently smooth out any wrinkles. Now BE PATIENT! Let it dry over night.
In the morning dampen it with a wet sponge and gently rub the paper off. Voila! Easy peasy!
I think I may have rubbed a little too hard. Notice that a tiny bit of the design rubbed off? Didn’t bother me in the least. Just gave it a more aged character. Afterwards I finished her with a soft rub of wax.
Now I am wondering, What took me so long to try this? Super easy and fun!
I think she’s a sweet addition to my floral chair.
And perfect to tie in my open family room with our "Farmhouse Basement Kitchen"
How about you? Got Milk?
