I’ve said before that I’m a sucker for gingham, so when I spotted this vintage spice rack, filled with jars that had gingham lids, at a thrift store – it was a given that it was coming home with me.
I wasn’t crazy about the color of the wood, and it looked a bit blah, but the shape reminded me of the wall shelf I made over last year with a Milk & Cream Co. image on it, so I thought I’d give this one a little farmhouse makeover too.
It took a few coats of white paint (brush painted) to cover it.
I printed a milk bottle cap image (the milk cap printables are here), cut it out and made sure it fit the space at the top (it did).
On the front side of the image, I used a paintbrush to apply a coat of Modge Podge Transfer Medium (affiliate link), the smoothed it down on the wood, making sure there weren’t any bubbles.
It’s important not to get any of the transfer medium on the blank back side of the image, or the transfer process won’t work.
I used a blow dryer to speed up the drying time, but you can just let it completely dry overnight as well.
Saturate the paper with water, then gently begin rubbing the paper off, revealing the image transferred onto the wood.
The transfer came out perfectly!
The red print on the milk cap image really ties in well with the cute gingham lids, and this spice rack is rockin’ the farmhouse look now! 🙂
I’ll be listing it in my Etsy shop in a day or two, in case you’re in the market for a cute farmhouse style spice rack!
And you’ll find these vintage style pantry label printables here.
