One of the Questions that I get asked most frequently is …
“How can I enlarge your images so that I can use them on Furniture?”
(An example would be this gorgeous table by Chi-Chi Studio Designs!)
There are a few ways of doing this… you can use Photoshop to enlarge the image, or you can use an Overhead Projector. However I wanted to make a Tutorial for those of you that don’t have Photoshop or Projectors. Instead you can use a Free online site called BlockPosters.com!
First go to BlockPosters.com.
Proceed to Step 1: Just click the “Browse” button and select your file and then click “Continue”.
Step 2: Decide how many sheets of paper you would like the image to be spread out on. (You can lay out blank pages on your project and see how many you would like to use, according to the size that you desire.). Then use the arrow keys to change the number of pages. And select Portrait or Landscape and you will see the measurements on the screen. When you like the size that you see, click continue.
Step 5: I cheated a bit here, because I found this awesome video from MyWonderfulWalls that shows you an excellent technique for transferring the image onto your Furniture piece, sign, wall or whatever your project is. The video shows the technique done on a Wall, but just imagine it’s a piece of Furniture instead, and you’ll get the picture!
For transferring you will need: 1)Light colored Pastel Stick 2)Ball Point Pen
To Paint your letters you will need either: 1)A small round brush & some paint or 2)Paint Markers
After your done, you may want to seal your piece with your favorite clear sealer to protect it.
Here are a two more gorgeous examples from my readers:

I hope you can use this Tutorial to make some lovely pieces of your own!
