This is the before photo. I took an antique wooden board, this one came off of an old door, it was one of the door panels. It had some old chippy white paint already on it so I just cleaned it up a bit.
I actually used my new favorite transfer paper to adhere the image to the board! This is the Iron on Transfer Paper that I used. It’s called Tap and it’s made by Lesley Riley. It’s truly fabulous stuff! (For more about Tap, go HERE to see a project that I did previously.)I used the reverse print image above, and printed the image onto the transfer paper, using my inkjet printer. I then used my iron to transfer the image to the wood. Some of the paint did curl up a bit when I did it, this would probably work better with a smoother surface, but I’m still quite pleased with the results. I’m not sure if this would work as well with a latex paint, it might melt. The paint on this board is probably oil and it’s been on there for a very long time.
Of course you can also use the printable to make towels, tote bags, pillows or whatever else you like!
