Sometimes you find beautiful things but they need a little freshening up. This sure was the case for this old oval hatbox. I stumbled across it at our local thrift store. I  loved its shape and it once had a beautiful handpainted design on it but was chipped and just in need of a refresh. Today I’m sharing how to upcycle An Old Hatbox Using Decor Transfers.

Should I seal my piece first before applying a decor transfer?

All paints and decor transfer are different. It’s best to trial how the paint you’re using reacts with your paint before tackling a big project. I have been using Fusion Mineral Paint, Sweet Pickins Milk Paint and Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint for years and haven’t had a problem yet with my transfers lifting after painting. 

I always seal with Tough Coat or Wax for added protection.

Supplies needed:

 

Step 1 – Give your entire hatbox a good old clean with TSP. Then give the hatbox a good sanding to eliminating any raised painted areas. Grab your brush and give the entire hatbox 2 coats of Buttermilk Cream, letting each coat dry completely.
