DIY Dip Dye

Speaking of trends, I jumped on the dip dye bandwagon! I have had a cute DIY Dip Dyed stool from HGTV pinned for what seems like forever. This past weekend I made my Pinterest-inspired dreams come true.

Her new place is great, but while I was visiting, I noticed that her Ikea chairs could use a little personality. So, Kesson and I headed to the paint store. We went with red because it’s her favorite color and she has a lot of great red statement pieces in her place already.

I really like the way the chairs turned out and I hope Kesson does too.  The effect was a subtle since we only painted about 3 inches from the base of the chair, but it definitely did the trick personality-wise. It was really fun to actually re-create something from Pinterest. Does anyone have any DIY projects planned for the weekend?
