The first step is to apply 2 coats of Dixie Belle Paint.

After the piece is completely painted you can prepare for the image transfer. The color used here is called Haint Blue.

After the paint is dry you begin by adding a thin layer of clear coat to the paper and to the piece of furniture. Apply the paper and allow to dry.

After it has dried for a while it is time to removed the paper from the image.

    That's a pretty shade of blue. I would prefer to have the image cover the entire panel in the door. Where do you get oversized images printed? Thanks...

    • Pamela, you may need to go to a printing company, fed ex, or USPS. If you have a printer at home, it may have the capability to print larger paper.

    Does the pic you're transferring have to printed with a laser printer?

    • To use this method of image transferring, you need to have a laser printer. If you're decoupaging a piece, you don't need a laser printer.

    It looks like something was applied. What would have been better is to cut the paper the same diameter so the doors would frame out the applied paper decor.
