Last week I shared a Patriotic BOHO style wooden star...
You can find the link to that post HERE.
When I found this cute little table, I knew that I wanted to cover the drawers with Caravans, the same transfer from Re*design With Prima, that I used on the star. And, I had plenty left over from that project.
I knew I might be facing a problem! The legs were wrapped in yarn at the bottom. Why would you do that? Are you trying to hide something?
They were absolutely hiding something! I removed the yarn, only to find electrical tape...
I removed the electrical tape, only to find double sided, thick tape. I removed that to find that some of the legs were badly damaged. I took the easy way out in fixing them by just cutting off the damaged part.
I painted the table with the color Honky Tonk Red from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.
I ran into another little problem.
The knobs on the drawers were glued on so I couldn't remove them to add the transfer. My daughter had the great idea to use a hole punch, then cut an X to make the hole fit over the knobs.
Once I had cut the transfer to the size of the drawer fronts, to find exactly where the holes should go, I painted the knobs with the color, Fluff, and while they were wet, I lined up the transfer with the drawer, & let the wet paint make a mark on the transfer.
The transfer went perfectly over the knobs!
And, there's nothing to hide...
no yarn needed to cover something up!
