They are easy to apply.
Furniture transfers offer an easy and economical way to bring color and personality to any piece of furniture, whether made of wood, glass, or smooth surface. They can even be applied directly on top of surfaces like tables.
Transfers are pre-printed designs attached to non-stick backing sheets. By applying pressure, these transfers allow you to use images quickly by rubbing them onto surfaces before peeling away their backing sheet and peeling away from them later.
Once a furniture transfer has been applied, seal it off using several top coats made from water-based materials such as polyurethane or wax to protect its finish.
Before applying for a transfer, the surface you plan on painting must be clean and dry. Sanding can help achieve an ideal surface for the image.
Once your furniture has been painted with chalk mineral or milk paint, you can begin applying for your transfer. However, it is advised that 48 to 1 week passes between painting your piece and using your transfer for best results.
They are durable

Unlike decals, furniture transfers come equipped with an adhesive layer on their back to adhere directly to another surface. The adhesive typically resists water penetration and can be removed using a dry cloth or pencil.
Transfers consist of three components: an acetate protector sheet, the actual transfer, and its backing paper.
After you’ve selected your design, apply an acetate protective sheet and position the transfer over it. Use low-adhesive tape to keep pieces in place while working.
Once completed, carefully burnish the image until it sticks securely to its new home. When complete, seal with a water-based sealer or polyurethane sealant for best results.
They are easy to remove
Furniture transfers (rub-on decals) offer an easy and durable way to add decorative details to furniture.
When applying for furniture transfers, it’s essential to take your time. Always begin by cleaning the surface.
Once your project is dry, seal it and allow it to air-dry before carefully peeling back its white backing to reveal your transfer.
If using large pieces, painter’s tape may help secure them to your project and can also remove transfer gently. A scraper can also help.
They are affordable
Furniture transfers (rub-on decals or decor stickers) offer an economical solution to taking your design game up a notch. Available in various styles and suitable for nearly every surface (even painted wood!), these stickers make your furniture design statement with minimal cost.
Utilizing transfer films on furniture is far easier than you might expect and can easily be removed without damaging the surface beneath them. They’re available locally at home stores and online at Home Depot and Amazon; even better, they’re also very cost-effective – perfect as gifts! Unlike paint, transfer films won’t fade over time so that they can be reused repeatedly without the risk of fading; the smaller transfers may even be safe for children! For optimal application, always use non-stick surfaces.
