DIY: Dip Addiction

So I mentioned yesterday that I would share my new "addiction" with ya'll, so here goes nothing! 

Once I finished my pretty new book stack, I realized that my candle looked really plain jane.
Looked like something I bought from the dollar store (and it probably was!).

So I decided to try something I've been seeing EVERYWHERE on Pinterest...

And it's really hard you guys....

You diiiip it....

And drrrrry it! 

And then repeat with everything in your entire house... 

Old vases...


{then spray glossed for a shiny finish} 

Old votives... DOUBLE DIPPED 

Topiaries stands....  

{Sort of} DIPPED.
...I had to finish up with a brush.  

Help! Someone admit me to D.A.!!!

It's awesome because it's SO easy and can be done in 5 minutes...but also dangerously addicting.
Have you tried dip painting yet? 

Here are some other easy//cute painting ideas

Reuse and dip old tin cans via Pinterest

A great weekend project you can do with kids too! 
Just don't say I didn't warn ya! 


  1. what a difference that bit of paint makes in amping up the wow factor
    the wooden spoons are adorable too

    1. Thanks! I agree! Such an easy change and can make such a difference!

  2. Found your blog via the IHeart hop! Excited to follow along with you! I noticed you don't have any painter's tape on the candle holder. There was a clean line without the tape? Hope that makes sense! :)

    1. Hi Amy! Good catch! I forgot to mention that! Yes, I definitely used painters tape on the vase - hence the clean line! It was so big I was worried I wouldn't be able to control the dipping!

      Happy you found me!
      Kim :)

  3. This is so cute, :). Just a question , with the wooden spoon and things like that.. Would the painted start coming off over a period of time..?? :)


Thanks for reading!
