This iron base bench is one of my recent finds. It was covered with a very dirty green material. It was part of a pile of furniture I purchased at an estate sale. If I recall, I paid around $5 for it. I didn't paint the base. I just gave the cushion a makeover.
I used my Splendid Blender transfer method to add cherubs to another piece of coffee/dye linen material. I didn't stir the dye too much, because I didn't want a uniform color. I wanted it to look faded in spots.
Just like the chair from my previous post.
For those of you who have asked, "Can you use the Splendid Blender to transfer onto other surfaces?". Yes, you can. I used it on this 25 cent bucket.
There are a few tricks to make it work properly. I'll be back with a tutorial. In the mean time, can you guess what I used the technique on here?
It's part of a really cool redesign.
