I have a fun old black and white wash day photo of my ancestors. The photo hangs in my laundry room. I thought it would make a great photo transfer project.
I took an old scrap of wood, painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White. I panicked when I didn't have any Mod Podge Photo Transfer Medium, and our local craft shop just went out of business. I found the regular Mod Podge Matte and purchased it. I read on Vintage Reflections blog that regular Mod Podge worked for photo transfer too, and that it dried clear and didn't leave white around any lettering. I tried it with a laser photo copy of my photo reversed. I will have to say, it worked just fine! And it's a whole lot cheaper. I added a saw tooth hanger to the back and a rustic hook to the front, and I have a fun laundry room decor piece.
I had another old cabinet drawer front or panel from My Junkin' Friend Jodi. I made another old grater photo display.
I used a water based poly to keep the all awesome chippy paint chips in place. I added a metal file tag to the top, and slipped in printed piece of card stock with the word "Vintage". My kind of project, vintage, rustic and re-purposed!
