Faux Dipped Wooden Boxes

Faux Dipped Wooden Boxes


I’ve really liked the dipped trend and originally wanted to dip the baby’s crib. In the end we decided not to, but something had to be dipped. The boxes for storing toys were the next option. But alas, there wasn’t enough paint or a paint tray large enough, so we had to fake it.

We (and by we I mean Panu, he did most work) first painted the boxes white with a semi-matte paint. After that, the top with two coats of glossy green furniture paint. Also the rims were painted twice. Then I took a narrowish brush (35mm) and painted the edges of the bottom half with lots of paint. I added loads of it and with the brush helped it drip, maybe even too much. It takes a while for the paint to start dripping, so it’s easy to add too much. You might want to make a test piece first.

And there you have it, the dipped effect! You can use it for so many things, like a coffee table or a dresser or even a cabinet for children’s room.

    nalle, meinaatko tuota punaista Seesamtien tyyppiä? Me ostettiin se uutena, en tiennyt että niitä on ollut jo pitkään :) Apina on sen sijaan ollut minulla jo ihan pienestä, niin kauan kuin muistan.

    Wikipedia tiesi kertoa, että Seesamtietä on esitetty vuodesta -69.
    Sisko on syntynyt -75 eli meillä lelu on varmaan ollut jostain 80-luvulta lähtien. Voi kun olisi enemmänkin leluja tallessa!

    No jopas, en tiennyt että sitä on esitetty niin pitkään. Luulin paljon uudemmaksi. Minullakaan ei ole juuri lapsuudenleluja säilynyt, tai kirjoja. Harmi, ne olisi nyt tosi hauskoja.
