DIY: Color-Blocked Wicker Poufs

On my recent trip to France I admired this stack of painted wicker poufs in the Parisian flat of Clarisse Demory. Getting the perfectly imperfect look is easy.

We first posted about dip-dying wicker poufs last year, and while we like the dip-dye trend, we’re ready for something just a little different. I noticed these hand-painted wicker poufs in Clarisse Demory’s Paris flat while visiting last month and couldn’t help but admire that while they have a similar effect to dip-dye from afar, up close they are a little less clean lined–and I like that.
