A HOMEMADE NIGHTSTAND GETS A DRAMATIC MAKEOVER USING TRANSFERS FOR FURNITURE | FOLK I TRANSFER MAKEOVER
Hi sweet SI family and thanks for joining me today! Are you into using transfers for furniture makeovers? Have you given them a try? I restyled this homemade nightstand and can’t wait to share what a dramatic impact this Folk I transfer made! I’m also sharing my go-to foam roller for painting furniture and an easy how-to-video on how to apply your transfers.
Here’s what I started with…
Here’s the new look! I went for a tribal folk look. Super cute, right?!
What a difference. I love the graphic design and black and white contrast!

FOLK I NIGHTSTAND MAKEOVER
You may remember this nightstand. It’s a curb-shopped homemade piece that I was using as a nightstand before I restyled my bedroom. I added a textured Grass Wallpaper back in 2017. Because it’s a high traffic piece and got a ton of use, the wallpaper eventually started to let go. Rather than glue it down again, I decided it was time for a fun makeover!
Once I peeled off the wallpaper and removed the hardware (I’m saving for another project!), I filled the hardware holes with Bondo and gave the piece a sanding. I have a full tutorial on How To Repair Furniture With Bondo here.
I primed with B-I-N Shellac Primer and then painted the nightstand in two coats of this pure white Cotton Chalk Mineral Paint. For a super quick paint job with NO BRUSH STROKES, I love these high-density 4″ rollers. I buy them online here or sometimes I’m lucky enough to find them at my local Dollar Store.
If you’re looking for tips on how to achieve a smoooooooth finish, I have a full tutorial on How To Paint Without Brush Marks. These rollers definitely made the list!
Now for the fun! I used this Folk I Furniture Transfer to create a tribal Folk design. I cut the transfer into pieces and played around until I was happy with the design on each drawer. I love getting creative with transfers and piecing them together in my own unique way!
Once I was happy with how the design came together, I removed the backing of the transfer and used this Rub-On-Method to adhere the transfer to the drawers. I have a full post including a step-by-step video here.
These furniture transfers can TOTALLY change your furniture style!
For the hardware, I used these old ugly wood knobs and sprayed them with this Rust-Oleum Black Satin.
Now they look amazing on the piece and tie in perfectly!
To seal the paint and transfer, I sprayed 3 coats of this Satin Clear Coat. Here’s another look at the before and after!
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS TRIBAL FOLK I PRIMA TRANSFER FURNITURE MAKEOVER… OR FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE… I ALWAYS LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.
Happy furniture painting my friends!
