Vintage Shabby Chic Chest of Drawers with Print No. 02

Vintage Shabby Chic Chest of Drawers with French Corset Print

This is old chest of three drawers we renovated using print transfer techniques

As you can see on pictures it was painted before, unfortunately it did not help in our works. It was four or five thick layers of oil paint with a lot of greasy dirt in between. It took ages before we could get started.

    Hello,

    I absolutely love your site and the finish of your pieces. Re the decal you used for this dresser, how did you get that watercolour / stamped background look on the front of each drawer as it doesn’t appear to be in the decal. Is that a stenciled paint job etc?
