Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint – Mermaid Tail Dresser Makeover with IOD Transfer

Want to learn how easy it is to create this look? Continue reading and see how I did it.

I scored this dresser recently at a local thrift shop and knew exactly what I was going to do with it.

I’ve been wanting to do a put an IOD Furniture Transfer on one of my dressers and this was just the right size for the job.

I wanted a layered base of blue and greens so I brushed on Mermaid Tail and Mint Chip, blending them together with each stroke.

See the variations and movement in color? This is exactly what I wanted for my base.

To give it a little more depth and dimension, I filled two of my small misting bottles with water and just a tsp of Queen Bee and Bohemian Blue. It’s very important to make this solution very week or the clay in the paint can clog the bottles.

I mist Bohemian Blue and Queen Bee in random areas and loved the affect. So incredibly fast and easy and oh so gratifying.

Can you see the blue speckles in this close up? That’s how the color mist will dry if you don’t brush it out.

I applied some of each color, blended and brushed that out, then once that was dry, I misted a few random spots and let dry so you could see some speckles.

Next I did a dry fit, leaving the protective back on the design. I cut it into pieces and moved miscellaneous pieces around until I liked the layout.

Once the paint had completely dried, I applied one coat of DIY’s Big Top Topcoat to seal the dresser and prepare the surface to accept the IOD Transfer. IOD transfers adhere much better if there you apply a coat of topcoat prior to adhering the transfer. Make sure your top coat is completely dry before applying the transfer.

The following day, I removed the backing and started applying the transfer. I stepped back to look everything over one last time before starting.

This part is so much fun. The transfer goes on so quickly and easily. They’re top quality and the grid lines are awesome for lining everything up.

I forgot to take pictures, but I did lightly distress the transfer so it would look more aged before I waxed the dresser.

After the transfer was applied, I finished the entire piece off with Clear, Dark and White Waxes, high lighting and low lighting.

It’s now for sale at The Honeysuckle Company on the north end of Grand Rapids by the meijer on Plainfield.

To recreate this look, you’ll need:

Mermaid Tail, Mint Chip, Bohemian Blue, Queen Bee, Big Top Top Coat, Clear Wax, Dark Wax and White Wax. Our stores are locked down during the pandemic but all the paint supplies in this makeover can be ordered from my Online Shizzle Shop at www.shizzle-design.com. Need IOD Transfers, Molds or Stamps? Those are also available at The Honeysuckle Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Hope you’re all doing well and are healthy and safe during these times of uncertainty. Take care, thanks for stopping by and Happy Easter!!

a hui hou!

Salvation Solution – Stain Blocker

Ever try to paint a piece of mahogany furniture or started painting a piece only to experience horrible bleed through from wood tannins halfway into your project? Salvation Solution is a true redemption for rebel furniture. Applying this prior to painting creates an incredible barrier to block those nasty stains and tannins.

Salvation Solution comes in both clear or white. Clear is best if you’re planning to wet distress your painted piece so the original wood peeks through. There’s a lot to look at on the labels, to keep the two straight, Salvation Solution is red on the label of the Clear version. It also says Clear on the very bottom under the chair.

If you’re painting a piece pastel or white, I recommend going with the White Salvation Solution. This will not only block potential bleed through, but it will act as a first coat in coverage. Here’s what the White can looks like. Note the words Salvation Solution are in Blue and it says WHITE under the chair.

Well that’s it for this week’s new products but I have so much more to share with you!! Sit back and be inspired. This DIY post is packed full of ideas, furniture makeovers, blended color combinations and every single paint color offered by Debi’s Design Diary.   Save this blog post as I’ll continue to add more photos of layered paint combos & techniques to inspire your painted furniture  makeovers
