Dipped Art for a Colorful Modern Home

This color dipped art is the perfect way to modernize a thrift store piece – all you need is a can of spray paint! Great for adding a unique, bold piece to your home.

Skills Required: Beginner. NO craft skills are required to make this. You’re just using spray paint.

Have you ever noticed the plethora of art in thrift stores? Maybe you haven’t, but I certainly have! Some of them are a wee bit tacky.

Others have potential, but they just don’t quite fit into your aesthetic. With this simple color dipped DIY wall art, you can modernize any old piece!

3. Carefully remove tape and garbage bag.

4. Touch up where needed (sometimes the spray paint bleeds through, I find a magic eraser takes off those spots easily).

This dipped art is a perfect way to add that pop of color in your space! Not to mention, bringing in those fun pieces of thrifted art you always see hanging around and collecting dust. I love the modern look and unique feel our space now has!

What a cool idea, Lidy! I just used your other idea for the color dipped frame in my living room. A little gold on a silver frame. It is so pretty! I love all your inventive ideas. Thanks for the inspiration!
