I had a really old cabinet that I turned into a display shelf and I kept the door thinking I would find a use for it later. I transferred this image of an old cologne ad onto it and as you can see, it really blurred. I put it aside, thinking I would sand it off and start over but I didn't want to lose the patina. After looking at it awhile, I decided that I like the smudgy rough old look of it and I'm leaving it alone. Perfection is over-rated.

I'm linking up to a tutorial (again! some more!) on how to transfer images using solvent, and the only thing that's different, is that you have to rub harder if you're transferring onto wood. See it here.
