It’s official, today I can reveal the brand new re.design with prima transfers coming out for Spring 2020.
The transfer I’m using for today’s project is called Vintage Seed and it’s perfect for spring. It’s basically a collage of vintage canning labels. It has some gorgeous colors in it, and a mix of floral and fruit images.
Also, here’s a great new feature on the re.design with prima packaging …
Specific sizing information! This will make it so much easier to determine whether or not a transfer will fit nicely on your piece. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m rather particular about that.
You could use this full transfer on a piece of furniture, maybe on the door fronts of a hoosier style cupboard or something like that. But I decided to cut mine up and thus get a lot more use out of it.
My first project was dressing up some of the glass canisters that I use for storing my craft supplies.
It was super simple to cut the labels out and apply them to the glass.
Aren’t the colors on these gorgeous?
I also recently dressed up a mirror that I removed from a dresser. I have a stash of these mirrors out in the carriage house from dressers that I have painted over the years.
I started out by painting the frame in Sweet Pickins milk paint’s In a Pickle, which turned out perfectly chippy.
Then I added a section from the Spring Flowers transfer to the mirror.
You have to be very careful when applying a transfer to glass, whether it’s mirror glass or clear glass canisters. It will be drawn to the glass like a magnet, and once it connects, it is stuck in that spot. So be sure you have it aligned exactly where you want it before you allow it to come in contact with the glass.
Now, I haven’t had a lot of experience with washing these items yet. However, I would recommend cleaning the mirror by spraying glass cleaner on a paper towel (not directly onto the transfer), and then wipe the mirror gently. For the canisters, I would not submerge them in soapy water. Instead, clean the insides and lids with soapy water on a cloth and then gently wipe the transfer.
The transfers can be removed from glass completely using a razor blade, if you should ever grow tired of them and want to switch them out for something else.
Be sure to check back next week to see the other projects I’ve been using the new transfers on including an actual piece of furniture that I’ll be sharing on Monday!
As always, thanks to re.design with prima for providing the transfers I used on these projects.
