My First Mod Podge Transfer

I've been dying to try the Mod Podge transfer method for months now.  I finally took the plunge last night using a pail duo that I got at Goodwill yesterday.
First I painted over the floral pattern with white spray paint.  Once that was dry, I used ASCP in Antoinette for a pretty, pale pink color.
I printed off this great French grain image (be sure to mirror the image first) on plain white paper.  Then I coated both pieces with Mod Podge and stuck them to each side.  I let them dry overnight.
This morning, I used a folded, wet paper towel to remove the paper.  You can probably see a little bit of paper left that I still have to scrape off.  My arm was getting tired - doh!

I'm pretty happy with my first try.  Hopefully, I'll have it nailed down for my next attempt.

this turned out awesome. What a sweet little bucket and a perfect color choice. I need to give this technique a try. Thanks for sharing.

Your pail looks amazing! I've tried the Mod Podge technique with mixed results. The last time was a disaster, so maybe I'll get brave and try again! Oh, and I picked up a double pail very similar to yours a few weeks ago at a thrift shop. Guess we both have the same great taste:)!

Thanks ladies! And yes, the image is in fact from Karen at The Graphics Fairy. I'm trying to remember if it was on the DIY blog she has or the original.
