DIY Paint Dipped
Earlier this month, we talked about ombre, how it’s super neat and super easy because all it involves is dipping an object into shades of paint a couple of times. And what could be easier than dipping something into paint a couple of times? The only think I can think of is dipping something into paint just once, which, hey, leads us right to the craft project known as paint dipping. Much like ombre, it’s painfully easy, pretty self-explanatory and can be done on almost any object, like so:
Table Setting: From hand-made bowls to glasses and utensils, pretty much everything at your place setting can be improved by a blast of color. Chopsticks, cutlery, and wooden utensils are all improved by a colorful coat, while bowls and glasses are classed up with some metallic embellishment. A good tip here: using chalkboard paint gets you the added bonus of being able to write names on your glasses, so you don’t lose track of whose drink is whose.
Furniture: A quick tip of paint can spruce up a chair, bright paint on table legs can draw the eye, and subtle shades of brown and tan can add dimension. Either way, a dip in paint can really improve that street score.
Shoes: Tape ‘em off and paint the tips or edges of a pair of boots, heels, or flats in a bright or metallic color and you’ve practically got a new pair of designer shoes.
