Frenchy Touch for Ikea Pitcher

by - April 10, 2013

I've had this pitcher from Ikea for a few years now.  Last year, I added a coffee label to it using Mod Podge.  Unfortunately, it started to peel off.  Can't have that, now can we?  So yesterday, I gave it a new Frenchy makeover using waterslide decal paper.

I have to say this is one of my favorite Frenchy images.  It's making the rounds on Pinterest so be sure to download it when you can!
I simply printed the image onto the decal paper.  Then I give it a couple of coats of clear spray paint so the image wouldn't run.  Once that is dry, you add it to a bowl of water and within minutes the decal separates from the paper and it can be placed on your item.
What I love the best about decal paper is that the image looks almost painted on depending upon the surface.  For the pitcher, my husband had to do a double-take because he thought it was indeed painted on (as if I could paint that well!).

I have another pitcher in the works (also from Ikea).  Meanwhile, I'm running low on my decal paper so I'll be ordering more through eBay.
