Blended Hutch with Magnolia Garden Transfer

Hi everyone! It’s Erin from Erin Rochon Design! Have you ever lost your creative vision on a project? I have had this tired, half finished hutch filled with my tax receipts sitting in my home for some time now. I lost my creative vision and I stopped working on it.

When Dixie Belle recently introduced their new line of transfers from the Belles and Whistles line, I was so inspired! The Magnolia Garden Transfer was the perfect addition to this hutch, I was so excited to try it out.  Here is how you can create this look using this gorgeous transfer on your next project.

How To:

Step 1:

Even though I had previously painted this hutch, I wanted to start off on the right foot. I gave it a quick prep by cleaning it with White Lightning, scuff sanded with 220 sandpaper and wiped off residue with a damp rag.

Step 2:

My plan was to create a blended technique, using Antebellum Blue on the bottom and Haint Blue on the rest of the hutch. Using my La Petite Brush, I painted the bottom section in Antebellum Blue to create a base coat before I began blending.

Step 3:

Using my Belle Brush I painted the remainder of the hutch in Haint Blue leaving a slight space between both colours.

Step 4:

Once my paint was dry, I applied my second coat of each colour. Using my Best Dang brush, I began blending each colour slowly and misting with the Continuous Spray bottle. I blended my paint in a circular motion, side to side, up and down to blend out any lines in my finish. Once I was happy with the result I let my paint dry.

Step 5:

My plan was to use the Magnolia Garden Transfer on the doors of the hutch.  I cut out the images and taped them up on the doors to help me decide on placement. It is a great way to try out different transfer placements.
