Hey there, Sweet Friends, it’s Transformation Thursday and today I’ll be talking about ‘Furniture Makeover’s using Decor Transfers!“
A Maker’s Studio recently released some exciting new products, and one of which is the Tri-Vek Color Transfers. If you want to shop and purchase go here.
A Maker’s Studio Color Transfers!
The Tri-Vek Color Transfers come in 6 different styles. The Bundle pack is a good option as the transfer can be adhered to a variety of surfaces to create customized DIY Home Decor, as well as creating one of a kind furniture make overs.
Furniture Make Over’s Using Color Transfers!
Decor Transfers added to Furniture Makeovers create a One of a Kind look. I thought i’d share some of my experiences of each.
A Maker’s Studio Color Transfers are a thick consistency and adhered well to my sealed wood surface. They recommended using a wood stick to adhere the transfer, and since there was not a tool included when I purchased the transfers, I decided to use the tool that Iron Orchid Designs provides, a small plastic scraper. The packaging indicates that sealing your surface after the transfer has been adhered is optional. I chose to seal my surface with DIY Paint Big Top.
Iron Orchid Designs Decor Transfers are a bit thinner and more delicate than the A Maker’s Studio Transfers. I have always had good experiences with the transfers and do like the tool they provide. I would say though, in comparison, they are thinner and more fragile.
Prima Marketing Decor Transfer come in a vast selection of images. I’ve noticed they can be purchased all over the web at varying prices and not just by retailers. Amazon and Etsy also sell the products. I find the transfers to be slightly more difficult to adhere to surfaces. Perhaps, it’s because the tool they provide is a cardboard stick which easily bends and breaks. Sometimes I do use a different tool, but have still found that they do not as easily come off of the backing. The transfer is a thick consistency and I’ve never had any issues with it ripping or sticking.
With all of these transfers, I’ve always adhered them to a waxed or sealed surface and not had any issues with the color bleeding or the transfer not adhering. Although, I’ve heard stories from others about this happening.
Overall, I would recommend all of these Decor Transfers. Each company has a variety of options to fit individual style and taste.
