Quick Tip #32: Paint-Dipped Furniture

{click to enlarge}

The following “paint-dipping” Décor Quick Tip is one of our favourites. We recently finished two very cool interior design projects in which we suggested this treatment be applied to some of our client’s new and existing furniture pieces… and it looked totally awesome!

#32  The paint-dipped treatment is one of the easiest and trendiest ways to give plain wooden furniture pieces, whether old or new, a quirky and stylish upgrade. This works wonderfully on any style of furniture – it can even add a fun contemporary eclectic twist to more ornate classical items.

Here is another brilliant “paint-dipping” Décor Quick Tip. This easy DIY idea is one of our favourites – especially if it involves metallic or neon paint!

#30  Use the paint-dipped effect to turn a budget basket into a one-of-a-kind designer item. A brilliant splash of colour, whether pastels, neons or metallics, can add instant interest and contemporise an otherwise dull and rustic woven basket.

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!
