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

Home & Garden 14

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?

I think it looks really stupid. It would have me thinking that person ran out of paint or had to leave before they could finish. It's terribly ugly.



@Zombie mommy , Seriously! What is that?!

I think it's fun :) It seems I'm alone & have landed smack dab in the middle of pessimistic city & they don't dip furniture there!

I don't like it. its one thing to pick colors to paint an entire table... but just the legs? Or just the top half? That looks stupid.

I don't like it for the same reason I don't like mules. If youre gonna wear a shoe, wear a shoe. If you want a sandal, wear that. Commit to one or the other already!
