The Blossomed Beauties Transfer is so pretty. Add in the rich and luscious Elderberry paint and it’s a win! 

Hello beautiful friends! I hope you are having a fabulous Tuesday and week so far! Today is Trash to Treasure Transformation Tuesday. That’s a mouthful, ha!
I love this day as my friends and I get together and share our latest “trashy” finds with you. All made over pretty and ready to be reloved.

So be sure to scroll all the way down to see what they’ve got going on today.

For me, you might remember I popped over to the ReStore last week and came home with some goodies. (I shared it over on Instagram at the time) This little table was one of them.

I used our new “Elderberry” shade which is just luscious. We have a bunch of new shades in our shop!

And I used our new Blossomed Beauties transfer too. We’ve also got a bunch of new decor transfers in too. You can find those, here.

Here is what it looked like when I found it.

It was a bit chipped up and pretty beat up honestly.

I lightly sanded it all over before doing anything since it was so chipped up everywhere. I wanted to smooth it out and also take a bit of the shine off the finish.

Then I pulled out my TSP Alternative and cleaned it up before painting.


Then I painted one coat of our new “Elderberry”. Which is just the most beautiful color!

It looks a little red in the photo above. It’s not red. It’s more purple-y maroon.

Here are my two hanging out with me on the porch as I was doing part of this project.

If you missed it, we recently added to our family! You can read all about Piper here.

After that was dry, I added a second coat and let it dry completely before adding the Blossomed Beauties transfers below.

I laid them around for ideas for placement. I had thought I’d stagger corners.

So that is what I did.

This Blossomed Beauties transfer set is so pretty. I broken mine up on the shelves but it sure would be pretty done like this too…

Anyway, after I got all the transfers on, I wasn’t sure I loved it! lol
But I continued on anyway and added a coat of Matte Toughcoat Topcoat.

This is the “front” and how I thought it would be displayed.

Afterward, however, I decided I liked it better this way.

I think the table and the transfers look better this way.

Or you could do it this way too if you want less of the transfers, and more of the pretty paint.

I just love how this transfer looks against that pretty and rich looking Elderberry paint.

Meanwhile…Piper is bravely checking out Ryder’s bed and bones as Ryder looks on. Haha!

Girl, you are asking for trouble!! lol

So do you love this new color as much as I do?? Wouldn’t it be gorgeous on a dresser in a bedroom? Or as a statement piece in a living room??
I sure think so.

PIN it to save it!

  1. Hi, Nancy. I love the table makeover. The Blossomed Beauties transfer is so pretty – I’ll have to get that one, for sure. I also want to tell you how much I appreciate that you put your finished product at the top of your blog post. It helps to see the final product first and then read how you got there. Thanks for that! :-)

    1. Thanks, Denise! Yes, I just love this pretty transfer and can see it being used in so many ways! Oh, you are welcome! I don’t always do that but I’ll try to remember that. :) xo

  2. Hey friend! A couple questions for you. When you painted this table did you start with it upside down? Did you paint the undersides of each shelf? I also seem to have problems with getting the paint to dry. Thank you!

    1. Hey Elle! No, but I do sometimes. It’s easier to get to some of the areas that way. Also, I don’t always paint the underside of pieces, it just depends. Which paint do you have trouble getting to dry? Fusion??

  3. What a rich and luscious color. I like the transfers they way you did them. You’d never guess it is the same table ever.

  4. That was pretty trashy, Nancy. I barely noticed the shapely Queen Anne legs before! The transfer is beautiful and suits the table well.

  5. I love the color! It really made a difference in the look of that table. I don’t care for transfers on furniture but they do look pretty on this one. I think if you hadn’t added them, the table would be much to plain. I personally would have blended another color in and created some faded areas but that’s only because I wouldn’t use transfers and the table needs something more. It’s too early and faded was the only word I could come up with..lol!

    1. Thanks, Shirley! It really did. And oh, yes, that would have been lovely too!! I did something similar on our coffee bar dresser. I need to utilize that look/technique more often! xo (and I get you on the word lol!!)

  6. Beautiful! When I scrolled down to the first picture with the light shining in and reflecting off the color, I gasped. I love this color; now.
