AN EASY WAY TO ADD GOLD-GLAM TO YOUR MAKEOVERS INCLUDING RUB ON TRANSFERS FOR FURNITURE.
Hi guys! Well, I have to say this teaching gig coming up at the end of September is definitely pulling me out of my comfort zone. Last week I did my VERY FIRST Facebook Live. For some reason, I was more nervous about going live on FB than I am teaching LIVE! Explain that one???!!
I had 2 people on my ‘live’ broadcast (thank you Roz and Crys’Dawna) but I was still nervous as can be. But I guess like anything, the more you do something the easier it gets, right? Thinking back, the first time I hit publish on my first blog post my heart went pitter-patter. Now it’s second nature to me.
Anyway, I’ve included the actual FB LIVE at the bottom of this post if you’re interested in seeing me be nervous nelly. 😉 And if you have any suggestions on how I can improve… kindhearted suggestions are welcome. 🙂
So, onto today’s makeover. This is the last piece in the estate sale bedroom set I picked up a month ago. It was such a pleasure creating individual looks for each piece, I’m kind of bummed they’re all finished.
Here’s a peek at the before and after. What do you think?

GOLD RUB ON TRANSFERS FOR FURNITURE::
I won’t get into a long how-to because these gold furniture transfers are applied the exact same way as the florals. If you missed last week’s video on how to rub on transfers you can see it here and I also wrote a step by step post here.
I LOVE that these transfers come in gold! Adding gold-glam to a piece really steps it up a notch.
It was challenging to catch on camera but when the light hits the gold details just right, it really does sparkle!
To tie everything in, I used this Warm Gold Gilding Wax to freshen up the hardware and also fill in the line details in the drawers. It was really easy to stay in the lines by applying the gilding wax with a small paint brush. The gold gilding wax in the routered detail creates a ‘frame’ around the transfer to keep it the focal point.
And check out the difference in the knobs! Rubbing on the Warm Gold Gilding Wax really helps revive them too!
To complete this tallboy’s French makeover, I stained the top with this rich Expresso Gel Stain. If you’re looking for a dark warm stain without a lot of red undertones, this Expresso is perfect.
So all four complete!
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS IN THE NAVY TALLBOY ‘GOLD’ MAKEOVER… OR FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE… I ALWAYS LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.
Also, as promised here is my VERY first FB LIVE. 🙂
I just did my VERY first Facebook LIVE EVER over on the Redesign/DixieBelle Workshop page. 😲 I'm sharing it with you…
