We all know a fresh coat of paint can do wonders on a tired piece of furniture. Now what if you only painted half or a small portion of it, leaving the rest as is and completely bare? “Dip dyed” is exactly that – it gives any traditional wood piece a contemporary edge. It is a DIY phenomenon taking the home furnishings and accessory market by storm. It’s fresh, hip ,and best of all, you can practically dip dye anything – chairs, stools, baskets, candlesticks, you name it!
I see it being similar to how an artist applies paint to their canvas – simply a few brushstrokes can be just as meaningful and effective, if not more, than a multitude of brushstrokes. The same applies for the dip dye. A little bit goes a long way, especially with a bright color. Keep it simple and just dip it!
I know this is my weekend project in the making, so stay tuned for some DIY examples!
