The image transfer is complete. And I must say, not a fan of the whole process. Im not sure I will be doing many more, but I HAD to try it out!
Here is the painted top that I managed to do properly haha!
The original table. I intended for it to be a custom order piece but found out it was too short for the order, so I decided to have fun with it!
The top of the image transfer. I was going for a nice super aged photo look.
Trying to decide wether to keep it white on the bottom with some trim or go black and rough it up. I chose black.
Here it is! the big mistake! After painting for hours to get the design on, I stood back to enjoy and realized .... wow - I painted it on backwards!!!! I stripped it down back to raw wood, and started the image transfer instead. Stood back to appreciate it and sure enough - I put the image transfer on upside down too! I was about the throw in the towel when my darling hubby, realizing my head jsut wasnt in the game that day said - um dear, why dont you just unscrew the top and turn it around? LOL! SERIOUSLY! Ya, my head was defintely not in the game!!!!
Another shot of the finished piece.
A set I did in grey tones and chose to chip the tower design out.
another shot of the grey set.

GypsyBarn writes: HAHA! I kept three versions. I think I added the third image after the post was written and forgot to change the title. The grey one, and both black ones. The image transfer process is not my fav process, but I have done a few more that I like quite a bit! Posted: 7:24 am on August 21st
