We see a lot of trends in design and they come and go, some I embrace, some I shun, but there’s one I’m loving lately and that’s the paint dip trend. Popping up all over the web are DIY projects and home decor where various pieces from furniture to kitchen utensils have been dipped in paint and *confession time* I’m really loving it. Why? Well, first of all I love color blocking. And I love anything two tone done well, it makes the piece more interesting IMHO. And I also love paint. Have I mentioned?
The best reason is, what could be more simple than a DIY project that involves some painter’s tape and the use of your paint color of choice to spruce up something ordinary. Am I right?

For me the attraction is the asymmetrical nature of it all. Never picking a halfway point, but rather choosing a more mischievous place to tape off your wood before you paint is really the key to the look.
