Inside Your Kitchen Cabinets

It may not be easy to make a corkboard cute, regardless of how many photos or takeout menus are pinned to it. Give your board an easy upgrade by painting on some chevron stripes.
Raise your next glass in style by painting your stemware in this dipped technique, using a can of spray paint and tape. We'll drink to that.
Guests will think you scored these beautiful, hand-painted votives from a high-end spot. This project takes no time at all and the only instructions you need are to brush without abandon.

Dip-dye is everywhere right now and it's super easy to achieve. Take a tired chair and tape off the legs ¾ of the way down. Try it with a pop of neon on stark white or unfinished wood or in a royal blue on white.
