Dip dyed furniture is the in look right now. The technique transforms any ole’ piece into something unique and different and gives it a modern, contemporary, and clean line look.
Dip dying furniture is a simple, inexpensive way to transform the look of a piece and give it an updated look.
I found this Bentwood chair with my Mom at an estate sale. It was tucked back in an old den and was just crying for attention. Being in such great shape, just needing a little TLC, we couldn’t pass it up!
I purchased some tung oil for shining up the wood and decided to go with Cece’s Vintage White to paint the seat and use for the dip dyed technique on the legs. And to get the clean, crisp line I desired I used the best tape for preventing bleeds, Frogtape.
FrogTape 1358463 Multi-Surface Painting Tape, Green, 0.94-Inch Wide by 60 Yards Long
I taped off the legs after I determined how much of the dip dyed look I wanted. After the coats were dry, I pulled the tape and used the rag with the Tung Oil and went over the entire piece to restore the wood.
I love the finished product. I think it would look so cute with a funky color painted desk, or holding its own grouped with some awesome artwork in someone’s entry or hallway.
