DIY paint-dipped chair

After getting inspired a couple of weeks ago, I finally tackled my first paint-dipped furniture project! It's a super easy and inexpensive way to transform a boring piece of furniture into a piece you'll love.

I started with an old Ikea dining chair from our basement and bought a CIL paint tester in Dramatic Coral from Home Depot (I think it was around $4-$5).

  • Chair
  • Paint
  • Painter's tape
  • Foam brush
After cleaning off my chair, I measured and taped off the areas I didn't want to paint.

Over a few evenings after work, I used my foam brush to apply several coats of paint. It took about five coats to get a really solid finish, but you could always prime first and use less paint. When your final coat is dry, peel off your tape and you're done!

I originally planned to use this chair in our guest room (now that the nursery's done, the guest room is next), but I've decided to steal it for our bedroom instead.
