Hi Blogging Buddies! Although this table didn't quite turn out the way I expected, I learned a few things.
1. Nothing is as easy as it seems.
2. Citra Solve, a great product, doesn't do well on painted wood. When I used it to transfer a laser print, it actually "bubbled" the paint. That is a technical term. You knew that.
And the ink ran, a lot.
3. Listen when a fellow blogger says she doesn't think that a laser print will work well on painted wood. I never listen...I just go ahead and do it anyway. I know, I am not too smart.
4. Distressing and a little dark wax can hide a multitude of errors.
Since the transfer was really pale, I had to use a paint pen to fill in the letters.
For the girl with her dress pattern, I had to go to Hobby Lobby and find a fine point artist pen and painstakingly go over each little line that I could detect. And it didn't look too bad.
It is good to learn from your mistakes, right?
Now, on to those chairs in my sun room next! See you soon!
Have a wonderful weekend!
