#31 A fun and easy way to add some colour and quirk to your indoor or outdoor potted plants is to paint-dip the pots! All you need is some sturdy (yet cheap) terracotta or ceramic pots and the colour[s] of your choice.

I think it is high time for a Décor Quick Tip, don’t you? I loved the fun little “series” we did last year and I thought it would be appropriate to kick off 2014 with a brand new quick tip series – all things paint-dipped…
#29 Give boring cooking utensils like wooden spoons and spatulas a new lease on life by giving the handles a paint-dipped effect. You can even try your luck with metal utensils or cutlery! Choose a colour combination that will compliment your kitchen colour palette or go for trendy bold neons or soft pastels. Always ensure that you use non-toxic paint and sealer. Paint-dipped utensils are not only beautiful kitchen accessories but also make excellent and personalized house-warming or kitchen tea gifts!
