A Perfect Image Transfer & A New Friend


This is a funny story about a chair, 
a perfect image transfer,
and a new friend...

You may remember the wedding chair 
I made for my daughter's bridal shower...


Well, one afternoon I got an email from a woman 
that owned a shop in a neighboring town...

She said she had a woman in her store that was looking for me... 

The woman asked the shop owner if she had ever heard of a shop called Homeroad 
and did she know where could she find me...

Funny thing is... I don't have a shop.

The shop owner did located me through my blog, emailed me and gave me Joanne's number so I could reach her...and I did.

Joanne is lovely! 
She was very excited to have found me.

Turns out she lives not far, follows Homeroad, 
saw my post on the wedding chair, and wanted to know if she could purchase one for her daughter's upcoming shower...


How exciting! 
Well, I made the chair for her.
She also bought a sign from my Etsy Shop...
We were both happy.
(And I've since made my email address easier to locate)

While I was making her chair, the image came out so well and was so easy to make I thought I'd share it with you...


After painting the chair with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, 
I printed a crown image from the graphics fairy


I cut it out very close to the crown 
including in between the inside pieces...

I coated the printed side with Modge Podge,
flipped it over so the printed side was down,
used a roller to roll out any bubbles,
then let it dry overnight.

In the morning I wet the whole thing with this sponge. The sponge is a little abrasive but not much... I rubbed off the paper using the sponge and the image stayed on the chair.
I wasn't too gentle, I gave it a good rub.


All the paper came off and left behind
an absolutely perfect image. 
It is smooth as glass on the chair.



I gave the whole chair a light sanding to distress the corners, then a coat of furniture wax for protection...




Joanne's chair is finished. 

She came by and picked it up, she is as nice in person as she was on the phone!

I hope her daughter loves the chair as much as mine did!

Wedding ~ A Chair for the Bride to Be


I was lucky enough to find 10 of these...


The loveliness speaks for itself...


The metal is rusty and the wood is dirty but 
they clean up very nicely!


With a coat of white paint and some embellishing, thanks to the Graphics Fairy for the crown...

Wedding ~ Pennants

It's shower day!
The DIY wedding decorations are ready... 


Using wedding scrap book paper, small Martha Stewart doilies, sticker letters, ribbon and aged tiny clothes pins we made adorable pennants to label the cake, seating card table and the Bride and Groom's table at the wedding....



and similar pennants for the bridal shower...


I printed out letters on the computer and used a large circle punch to make the letter circle...



The tiny clothespins were dropped into a mixture of white vinegar and steel wool which turned them a beautiful aged gray in seconds....


Beautiful banners to greet our beautiful bride!
Hope she enjoys her wonderful day!
