Vintage Number Tutorial + Before & After
I just took this corner cabinet down to The Feathered Nest and I have gotten lots o’ compliments on the vintage numbers painted on the front drawer. So in proper Refunk My Junk style, here is a quick and easy tutorial to show you how it’s done.
The cabinet was given to me by a friend who was moving. I love it when I get free furniture! Thanks Josh!
Here is the finished product painted in Destin Gulf Green and Simply White. Notice those vintage inspired numbers? Let’s dive in and see how it’s done. It’s soooo complicated! Not really. Let me show you!
All I did was print out the image I wanted onto regular old printer paper. Then I took my transfer paper… See image of what tracing paper I use? I should have taken the wrapper off… Sorry for the glaring photo.
You can get this at any craft store. It’s pretty inexpensive and can be reused over and over.
I then traced my image onto the drawer.
I then filled in the number with black craft paint. Easy. Done. Fancy lookin’.
Let’s review the B&A again?
Really the options are endless with tracing paper. What project will you trace and fancy up and old project this weekend?
