I’ve been seeing this trend popping up everywhere I turn. It’s a fun and fresh way to add a splash of colour and contrast to your furniture and accessories.
If you can’t find furnishings sporting the right colour dip to coordinate with your decor, in stores or online, don’t fret. This look is 100% DIY-able!
Give new life to your existing glass, metal, ceramic or wood furnishings in a snap.
Create the dipped look by taping off and protecting the area of the piece that you don’t want treated and spray paint the remainder in any colour you choose.
Tip – Don’t forget to apply a coat of spray primer to ensure that the finish coat adheres properly.
For a more authentic dipped look, tape a diagonal line around your piece to create the illusion that it was dipped into the paint on an angle.
This is one of those trends that can be embraced on a small scale, through accessories. Plus, it’s a low commitment, high style way to add some drama to your space. Win-win!
