A little while ago, I just couldn't bear to see our old Ikea couch in that worn out red fabric any longer. Not wanting to dish out $400 bucks, (if I didn't absolutely have to), I wanted to find another way. So, I had a thought. How about dye? What if I dyed that sucker a dark brown or black? I had played around with dye a couple of times before, read more about my experiences here and here.
I am off to the store to check out my options. Right now the two strong contenders are Dylon or IDye. Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe. Wish me luck. I have a weird feeling about this experiment. I meant to say project.
Have a great weekend everyone!
I feel like there was a feature in Style at Home where one of Sarah Richardson's interns died her Ikea armchair cover. The only problem is it can mess up your washing machine! Good luck!ReplyDelete
Wait, doesn't Ikea sell covers for $50? I think I paid that for the Ektorp sofa? i could be wrong.ReplyDelete
