Hi friends!  Have you been noticing all the insanely gorgeous floral furniture makeovers showing up on Pinterest lately? If you’ve ever wanted to try a larger transfer or have ever applied furniture transfers which overlap your drawers, today I’m sharing an easy DIY Hack I know you’ll find helpful. It costs $1 at a dollar store and it saves a ton of time!

So check out this 3 piece vintage bedroom set I picked up at an estate sale. You all know how much I love working on these mature pieces. It’s always a treat! Here’s the seller’s pic… gorgeous vintage, right?!

APPLYING FLORAL TRANSFERS TO DRAWERS:: 

If you’re new to using these furniture transfers, I have a full tutorial on How To Apply Rub-On Transfers here.

When using larger transfers or overlapping transfers onto a drawer, I used to measure each drawer and cut with scissors – lay the pieces onto the drawer and then rub on.

I’ve found a much easier and faster way…

An easy quick-tip or #hack to avoid spending time cutting your transfers to size [for each drawer] is to use a craft knife. I get mine from the dollar store but any utility knife or X-Acto will work.

First I lay my piece on it’s back like in this post here … I find it much easier to lay out the design and apply the transfers when the piece is horizontal rather than vertical — and then lay the floral design right over the drawer opening.

Once the transfer is all rubbed on, I use a craft knife to cut the transfer between the drawer slits. It sliced through the transfer like a hot knife through buttahhh. And because I have the top and bottom of the drawer to guide me, it’s a nice clean straight line.

For the finishing touch, I use the rub on stick provided with the transfer to wrap the excess around the drawer.

Once it’s all rubbed on and the plastic top is removed, it’s a flawless finish! Saves me a ton of time rather than measuring and cutting with scissors. And check out how good it looks!
