APPLYING REDESIGN WITH PRIMA TRANSFERS TO FABRIC IS JUST AS EASY AS APPLYING THEM TO FURNITURE . . . AND CHECK OUT THE AUTHENTIC RESULTS!
Do you have anything fabric that could use a fresh new look? Maybe old canvas shoes, a plain-jane throw pillow — or as in today’s’ makeover, a set of dated fabric storage boxes? If you’re new to using transfers (and even if you’re NOT!) this is a great “build your confidence project” with an amazing outcome.
And now that I’ve seen the results, OMGOSH… seriously, the possibilities are endless. I love finding new ways to use products so I’m excited to share furniture transfers aren’t just for furniture!
Here’s the before. This box set was super cute when I bought them from Homesense years ago but were looking a little drab and dated…
Looks how bright and cheerful they are now! What do you think?

Prima Transfers On Fabric::
Before I get into the How-To’s, a big thank you to ReDesign With Prima for providing the supplies for this project. Sometimes I have things sent to me that I wouldn’t otherwise try. Although I love the bright colors and design in this Boho Bird Butterfly Transfer, I probably wouldn’t have picked it for myself so it’s fun to try new colors/products and stretch out of my ‘creative norm’ every once in a while.
Okay, so I started by removing the ribbons and giving these boxes a good vacuum. My original thought was to silk screen stencil ribbon strips back on (which I did and didn’t like) so then I decided to take it an entirely different direction.
I ended up painting the entire top[s] with this Iron Gate Chalk Paste. Chalk Pastes are wonderful to work with. They’re super thick with great coverage.
To get the authentic fabric look, I sanded it down so all the fabric’s texture shows through.
Once the top was painted and sanded, I applied the colorful Boho Butterfly Design with the wood applicator.
Applying a transfer to fabric works the EXACT same way as applying a transfer it to furniture. The only difference when working with fabric is the fabric needs to be laid flat and on a firm surface so you can apply pressure when rubbing the design on.
To get the transfer to look like fabric, I sanded so the texture of the fabric shows through the design.
I’ve taken some close up’s so you can really see the texture. Doesn’t it look like REAL fabric?!
I’m so impressed!
My parrot tulips are blooming in my garden so I thought they’d be perfect styling since there’s a parrot in this design. 🙂
Can you think of any other fabric projects to use these transfers on? I’m sure there are endless possibilities I’m not even thinking of!
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS BOX SET MAKEOVER… OR FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE… I ALWAYS LOVE HEARING FROM YOU. IT MAKES MY DAY. 🤗
