Furniture Dipped in Bright Colored Paints: Pretty or Just Plain Strange?

Posted by Gabrielle Blair on September 21, 2012 at 3:53 PM

I've been seeing dipped furniture everywhere -- furniture that's been partly "dipped" in brightly colored paints. While I think it's a pretty cool way to perk up a piece, I'm wondering if this trend is here to stay or just a passing phase.

Either way, it's a lot of fun to look at. Click through to see 5 more dipped furniture ideas below!

Hmmm ... hot pink was a pretty bold choice for these table legs, but I love how it livens up the space. 

If painting good wood makes you nervous, why not just do it halfway?

I've spotted this side table several times in my browsings, and I have to say, I think it looks awesome!

These colorblock dipped chairs are so cool! 

Still not sure how you feel about this trend? Keep it simple by doing a small stool for starters. 

So tell me what you think, are you on board with dipped furniture or is this look a little too weird for you?

 Not all of those are my taste but I don't dislike them.

I am not a fan of partially painted furniture, but I think we all know I have no issues with painted furniture- watermelon pink chairs anyone?

Looks "off", when only a portion is colored.

I like the bright colors, and I like the table with the blue legs. It works if a part is entirely colored. I'm not liking the partial dips. The table with the pink legs looks like they ran out of paint.

Not for me. I like dark colors, earth and jewel tones.

LOve it! This is the first time I have seen it. It is very pretty and it gives me an idea for my old nursey rocker for my daughter's "big" girl room.

Thanks!
