Mod Podge Transfers on Chalk Painted Suitcase and Seed Box

 


Hello my friend !

I was invited to join a boutique on May 1st. ,

that will be part of a GARDEN TOUR.

I will be set up at one of the homes on the tour.

SO.....I have been going through my things looking for some to take with me.

 Last week I say this train case my favorite thrift shop

The inside looked so bad-

the lady told me ''We can't sell this just take it if you want it"

Yes, please!

No, I did not take a picture of the inside-

nasty stains from perfumes and lotions.


I should have taken the picture of my husbands face!!!

Priceless :)

Chalk Paint can fix it-



Chalk Paint can fix it-




Here's the first coat



The second coat covered the stains and the green cloth. 

I used some white trim that I had to cover the
 
edge of the mirror.





It had the key so I pinned it inside on a doily.


I was pleasantly surprised the the paint even covered up 

the perfume smell!

Two coats on the outside-





When the case was dry I looked for a label.






You will want to print label in reverse-


Use an INK JET printer and regular copy paper











Here it is in reverse to make it easier for you.

Save and make a copy  








The label came from The Graphic Fairy.


Trim to fit.

Cover design with a coat of MOD PODGE.


Press firmly and leave it alone overnight !



Come back now and wet the paper-

You will see the design showing through-



Start to gently rub off the paper with your fingers.




Keep rubbing-


Until all the paper is removed.





Easy as can be!







The other box was wood, plain and painted black.

I painted it white and added a label-



To protect and seal your transfer, use spray matte sealer or clear wax.


I have a few more upcycled suitcases here   and here.


Thank you for your time!

I appreciate you so much, leave a comment and say hello-

    1. Donna,
      Thank you so much. You always give the best encouragement.
      It is definitely a technique I will do again. I put some transfers on galvanized buckets and loved it.
