Here's another image transfer project.
It's totally making me wish I had an adorable farmhouse to use it in.
This started out as a plain old wood Wisconsin cheese box from Goodwill.
The box itself was in good shape. I grabbed it as soon as I saw it, but then I wasn't sure, so I put it back. I grabbed it again a few minutes later and still wasn't completely sure what I could do with it. I bought it, brought it home and began looking online for a graphic image that I could transfer onto it. It wasn't long before I spotted this cow image HERE and purchased it. I wanted a dairy/cow/farm image to coincide with the fact that this was a cheese box.
This is the second project that I have used wax paper to transfer an image onto painted wood.
You can see the other project and read more about how this is done HERE.
The Etsy shop I purchased the image from even provided a reversed image, which saves a step.
I painted the box white and lightly distressed the edges before I transferred the image onto the top.
The image wasn't quite as dark as I would've liked for it to be so I used a black colored pencil and lightly colored it in a little.
You can kindof see a difference in the two pictures after I colored it in.
I also sprayed a clear matte sealer on the box to help protect it.
That's it. I love how it turned out!
'til next time,
