Susan, that is so COOL! I have long admired those decals, too . . . often fantasized about finding some great, vintage ladies to decal onto my painted kitchen cabinets. You might be giving me the nudge I need. Thanks!


Old decals are so beautiful--I'm always hoping to find some when I'm out thrifting but they are getting harder to come by. Love what you did with them here. Thanks for the tutorial!


You're right Vicki. There old decals are getting harder to find. That's why I was thrilled to come across these! I have seen some newly-made decals that are produced with an ink jet printer on special transfer film. But they just aren't the same. The material is different and they don't have the staying power or the look of the old ones.


What a great find, Susan! These are so sweet and charming. I must keep my eye out for some of these beauties.



Susan that is terrific! Your Finds
are great!

Oh the wonderful things I have done with Meyercord Decals. And the beauty of them is that they don't seem to have deteriorated over time and adhere just as beautifully as they did back when June Cleaver made little Beaver's potty chair all that much cuter!

Nicely done! I've really only noticed decals on baby furniture. Who hasn't seen a vintage crib with a lamb on it? I saw in a kitchenware reference book that you could sometimes get ones that matched the print on your dishes. Wow!

Lucky you for finding a stash,and they're still usable!


I have always loved those decals but didnt know what they were called.. Cant wait to see what you do with it all

Susan, I actually remember in the back of my mind, seeing items with decals like these in my mothers kitchen. I vaguely remember a waste basket in my bedroom when I was about 4 or 5 years old with floral decals like these. This was a wonderful find.

To be honest, I almost never think about using decals before.

The rose decals on the white stool are lovely, it looks like it was printed with that pattern from the factory. I think white background is the best for the transfer-type decoration.

This is a great tutorial. Thanks, Lisa.
