Anyhoo...that got me thinking about my boring brown baskets under the TV console. I have been staring at this area for a while now trying to figure out what needs to change.
It felt like the TV area was one big brown blob! Then I remembered those white dipped vases and that's when the light bulb went on! What if I dipped the baskets just a bit to create a little depth to this space!? Aren't I just genius? HA!
So on I went using what I had around the house....
I painted using a harder bristle brush so the paint would really get into the cracks of the basket.
No painters tape needed! I just used my eye and the different weaves to help me stay pretty straight. I painted about four inches up from the bottom. (This is a fairly large sized basket from World Market!)
Then it was time to test my theory...was the big brown blob gone?
Yep! It sure was! I am loving the extra little pop under the TV. You actually notice these amazing baskets now where as before they just blended in.
This project cost me $0 because I had everything on hand in my garage! Think of the possibilities of this DIY...you could use fun bright colors in a kids room, dip dye some storage containers for the flour and sugar on your counter or even dip your garden pots for the summer!
What do you think? What could you see dip dyed in your own home?
