Farmhouse Tray by Stephanie Coon

Stephanie Coon found this galvanized tray at Homegoods and could not wait to make it into something fabulous! With some General Finishes paints, IOD transfers and a little ingenuity, she came up with this design...

IOD designed a number of gorgeous transfers to use for DIY projects. This one here is called Gloucestershire (815561) and it is 24 x 36 inches in size. So it can be used for larger projects or small ones like Stephanie did.

Cut the transfer images apart (cut through both layers) and start placing the images where you want them before getting started. This will help with spacing, sizing and getting an idea of how you want it to look without the commitment.

Stephanie painted the bottom of the tray with chalk paints and got to work on adding her transfer pieces. They go on much like a rub-on. The application stick is provided with the transfer....be sure to go over it well, making sure all of the image has transfered to your surface.

Add more images if you like. Doing the main pieces first will give you an idea of where to fill in later...

Love the finished look! You can use this on table tops, hang on the wall, add to your mantle or anywhere you like!

We hope you will give the IOD transfers a try! They can be used on multiple surfaces and look especially great when sanded a little for a worn look. They are very durable but we do recommend sealing them on a surface that will see some wear and tear... Enjoy!
