Being out in the garden is something I’m craving for right now because it’s winter time here in Australia. But that won’t stop me from making things with flowers and dreaming I’m out in the garden with the warm sun on my skin! Especially if it means joining a lovely group of my blogging pals for our Summer Living Blog Hop! Sharing how to make a Farmhouse Rose Garden Sign.
How To Make A Farmhouse Rose Garden Sign Using A Transfer
Summer means painting furniture outside, sipping on iced ginger beer until the sun goes down and BBQ’s for dinner because it’s too hot to eat inside!
Do you have a favourite thing you like to do in Summer?
- An old door – I found two of these doors from a cabinet on the side of the road. To see what I did with the other click HERE
- Jig Saw
- Fusion Mineral Paint – TSP
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Layla’s Mint
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Farmhouse White
- Brush – I used my Cling On! F30
- 120 grit sandpaper
- IOD Decor Transfer – Flora Parisiensis
- Brad Gun or staple gun
- Wax Brush
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Beeswax
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Chocolate
Step 1 – Give the entire door a clean with TSP to remove any grime or dirt. Remove any door handles and the glass insert. Flip over your window and measure around your frame leaving a 1cm border to get the measurement that you need to cut out your backing piece from plywood. Measure it out on your plywood and then using your jigsaw cut out the back piece.
Step 3 – Distress both the backing and the door frame to your liking. Then using either your brad gun or staple gun nail the plywood to the back of your door frame. Then using watered down chocolate stain the back of the plywood. Let dry.
Step 4 – Lay out your transfer making sure that you don’t remove the white backing paper. If you do wherever you place your transfer it will sick. Start cutting out the flowers and stems until you get a design that you like.
Step 5 – Using the tool that comes with the transfer press firmly to adhere the design onto your backing piece.
Step 6 – Repeat until all of the design is transferred.
And you’re all done! Now you have a farmhouse rose garden sign that you can enjoy all year round!
