More Vintage Transfers! 'Vintage Tractor' and 'Life On The Farm'

If you like Farmhouse Decor, you are in for a treat!  We have a new vintage vehicle in town, it's 'Vintage Tractor' and guess what?!  All the add-ons for Vintage Truck fit on the back of the Vintage Tractor.  I'm lovin it.  Here is a picture of what I am talking about.




So awesome right?!!  Now I have to chalk up these two new ones and cut it out on my scroll saw to go with my truck!

And, you know I have a video right? Here ya go:




This is one of my favorites by far....... These transfers are all about layering.  Here are my tips.

I stained and waxed this wood round,  applied two transfers:  'Love Never Ends' and 'Rustic Wreath'.  I put a couple coats of Protective topcoat and two handles.




It's a serving tray, but you could easily attach a lazy susan kit to the     bottom.





Speaking of Lazy Susan this is how I re-decorated mine:

Watch my video to see how I made these footballs....you have to watch all the way to the end 😉
