Upcycling of Vintage Italian Furniture
Furniture Makeover – Vintage Italian Beauty
So we have been commissioned again.
This time by lovely Italian couple for a makeover of some of their charming Italian pieces. We have done part of the job so far, and would love to share with you the results.
The print transfer you can see on the piece below was created with Screen Printing method, however you can replicate this effect using Water Decal that is available in our online shop at BigBite Studio – Print Transfers.
You can have the design as
Water Decal: Vintage French Advert: Corset Susan #003.

This is a final (so far) result of our chasing for perfect turquoise. We ended up with this beautiful vintage chest of two drawers painted in shabby chic style with teal sea colours.

For long time we couldn’t decide whether to paint it or not, it was so charming as it was. But, after all, we end up with a piece you can see at the pictures. Read More
