Easy Hand-Painted Wicker Poufs

After posting about dip-dying wicker poufs last year, Remodelista editor Alexa was ready for something just a little different. On a recent trip to France, she  admired this stack of painted wicker poufs in the Parisian flat of Clarisse Demory. She noticed these hand-painted wicker poufs have a similar effect to dip-dye from afar, but up close they are a little less clean lined.

Recreating a similar imperfect look is easy. Here is some inspiration:

Above: Clarisse painted each piece with white paint and a paint brush (no dip dye required). The result is a wicker pouf that lends an offhand chic vibe to a space.

They're very cute but I can't imagine our butts being comfy on them--much less a meatier butt. Thanks
