This bright and colorful floral furniture transfer was the perfect addition to this $6 thrift store bookcase!
Hello sweet friends!
It’s Trash To Treasure Transformation Tuesday! Yippee!
If you are new around here, several of my friends and I get together each month to share our trashy treasures, thrift store finds, etc.
So be sure to scroll to the bottom to see them all!
Today I’m sharing this $6 bookcase I found recently at the thrift store.
BUT…before we get to that, I just want to give you a reminder to hop over and enter my latest GIVEAWAY if you haven’t yet. You can find it here >>> July Giveaway
Floral Furniture Transfer Bookcase Makeover
I began by cleaning it up and then applying a coat of Transition paint first. (it’s a high hiding in between or base coat, not finish coat, perfect for going from dark to light, etc)
Then once that was dry, I gave it one coat of Casement.
This floral transfer was the perfect choice for this little bookcase. It came with 3 sheets so it worked out perfectly!
I simply rubbed on the transfer like so…
Peeled off the clear sheet and am left with this…
Isn’t that so pretty?
I continued with the next shelf…
You might have noticed that I let the flowers and leaves “fall over” organically around the sides instead of making sure it all stayed on the back.
However, for the top shelf, since it was a bit more narrow, I decided to let it organically overlap at the bottom (where you will see it) and trim the top to fit. (as you can see below on the right)
I love how this turned out!
All those pretty colors with the white background make them just pop.
I sealed up the floral furniture transfer with a coat of this…
And done! Since the Fusion Mineral Paint has a built-in top coat, I didn’t need to do anything else to that.
Ryder says hi…well he wouldn’t look at me the first time I called him, haha. (ignore my weights, lol)
Oh hi, there you are!
A little bit styled up…
My mom and son.
My sweet babies…now all grown up!
Those pretty, colorful flowers are the perfect backdrop.
Don’t discount what a little $6 sad, beat-up bookcase can look like. You just never know!
Some paint, a pretty floral furniture transfer, and some love are all it needed. :)
PIN it to save it!
Wait! Don’t go yet! Check out what my friends are up to below:
