I thrive in a minimal, clean house. There. I said it. Clutter stresses me out, and recently I have become a collector of things… beautiful things… but too many things. The walls in out home have really stumped me, because it’s such a small house, and I want it to be bright and airy, so bold, colorful decor just didn’t make me excited. With that said, we waited for about a year before even putting anything up on our walls.Well, drum roll: we finally put some holes into it, and I am loving how it turned out. Today I want to share one of the light and airy pieces of decor that we made for our kitchen. Have you see the before and after? CHECK IT OUT HERE. We thought about doing a “Market” or “Kitchen” sign, but my husband didn’t like those ideas, and I really wanted to try to go for more of a letterpress feel anyways. So I thought I would try out my printer transfer method on Isaiah 41:10-13, which is one of my favorites, and VERY appropriate to put over a door in our house. Kind of like a daily reminder of our house being anointed.

Step 1. Grab a plastic hold punched three ring binder sheet cover. I recently had lots of personal issues with my Printer Method not working for me and getting jammed, but then I discover that if I cut the holes and insert a piece of paper, it glides through smoothly.

Step 2. You need a long, painted board. Mine was 69.25″ long and 8″ tall. It fits above a 63″ trimmed out sliding door with a little bit of overhang. Originally, I was going to do it the exact size of the door, but my husband suggested that it would look better longer, and he was right!

Make sure that your paint isn’t high gloss… the flatter the paint the better it will absorb the ink.

Step 3. Print out the wording one page at a time. If you aren’t using my download, just note that you HAVE to mirror your text, or it will come out flipped. I forget this EVERY.SINGEL.TIME. Lol.

Step 4. Gently Slide out the paper so you will be able to visually see where you are placing the ink.

Place ink side down (you should be able to read it now!) & gently rub it onto the wood. Mine did look bubbly, and I almost gave up because of how blotchy my ink transferred (I think my paint was more high gloss than flat) but now it’s one of my favorite things to look at from a far. 🙂

DON’T touch it for a while… like seriously, mine was still a little inky a week afterwards.

Repeat Step 4 with all the pages, gently wiping off the un-transferred ink, printing, and then lining up the wording.

I had to do my sign twice becuase I didn’t like the way it turned out the first time… like I made it seriously crooked, I didn’t like the font I originally used, and it wasn’t centered. But the second time was the charm for me.

It took quite a bit of time to do the whole process, but it was so worth it.

Oh, and make sure you don’t have little kiddos running around wanting to “help” (aka smudge it all over themselves) Ink isn’t a kind formula.

ALMOST THERE! lol!

I used an old credit card to help with the transfer, but since my wood was grooved I also rubbed it with my hands.

And here it how it looks now! Ta-Da! So pretty.

    habe es gerade probiert mit einem Tintenstrahldrucker. Hat beim ersten mal geklappt. Ich musste kein Papier unterlegen. mein Drucker: canon PG 6450- Mein Untergrund: gebeiztes Holz
    Ich habe sichterheitshalber einen Bibelvers genommen und vorher gebetet, dass der Drucker heil bleibt.
    Puh es ist gut gegangen!
    Vielen Dank für den tollen Tipp!
