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.
