So I have had this awesome, little green window laying in my garage in my way, for quite some time.
I have been doing lives every day for a while now. I rarely plan ahead for these. So I was scrounging around looking for a project. I spied the window. And I had furniture transfers open from the previous crafting live.
I hurriedly washed the window and ran inside to make lunch and let the window dry.
IF I had been prepared, I would have sanded the window before going live also, but I wasn’t. So I did end up sanding the window after the live.
Basically, you just apply the transfer to it. I cut out the pieces I wanted and kind of laid them out where I thought I would like them. I knew where I wanted the script to go, so I just laid out the flowers around that.
And then I started rubbing.
The transfers come with this little stick that you rub the transfer onto your surface with. https://flippinfurnitureshop.com/products/overflowing-love-redesign-decor-transfer
That’s it! Pretty simple. If you want to watch me do it, you can watch the video of me doing this window here…
One of a Kind Mirror Makeover
This was another one of those things that just laid around in my way. I had spray painted the mirror and distressed it. I had meant to take it to my store, but for whatever reason, it never made it there.
Then I closed the store. And still, it sat.
Skip ahead a few months, and I am needing to do a Facebook live and looking for something to make.
It was this mirror’s time to shine!
I dusted it off and cleaned the glass, and we had a beautiful, clean slate to work on!
I also did this one on a Facebook live, so if you would like to actually watch me do the video, you can…
So, I roughly decided how I wanted the transfer to go. I knew I wanted it on the left side of the mirror for the most part. I was also going to add some random small flowers here and there, but in the end, I felt like the left side was good, and I needed to leave some of the mirror showing, right?!?
Also, knowing I was planning to also stencil the window, I had to trim down the side of the transfer a little bit.
Once I had it cut and figured out how I wanted it placed, I commenced rubbing it on.
After the transfer was in place, I got my paint and finger sponge ready.
I did a little research about what type of paint to use on glass. Enamel was the recommendation. So I laid my stencil down and dabbed on the paint.
I have also checked, and the furniture transfers are ok to be put on glass. They just tell you not to use any chemicals on it, like glass cleaner.
So I would probably just Swiffer it to be safe.
And there ya have it.
Two more uses for furniture transfers!
