Redesigning A Thrifted Wood Vase With Prima Marketing Transfers

March 10, 2020
This wood vase was one of my Goodwill finds from the Twin Cities.  

It's in good condition but just not my style.

After starting to paint the vase with a dark gray, I changed it up and brushed on two coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Drop Cloth. 

Next I pulled out one of the sheets from the Redesign With Prima Fuchsia Sunset transfer tube.

I also used this transfer on this stack of painted books.

 I cut out a remaining section of flowers, and positioned it on the vase.

I removed the paper backing and used the rectangular stick to rub the transfer down.  I very carefully lifted it on one edge checking to see it the transfer was all stuck down to the vase.  If not, I put the plastic film back down and continued rubbing with the stick.  

I added a few floral sections to the back of the vase as well.

I then distressed the edges of the vase just a bit with 220 grit sandpaper, and waxed it with Dixie Belle Big Mama's Butta.

 The floral is so beautiful!

I added a couple of holes to each side of the vase to add a jute handle.

Finished vase with faux greenery.

 I think the vase will be even better with summer flowers.  A glass vase will easily tuck inside the wooden vase.
