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-
