Hey guys ! Last summer I was able to find 2 white old wingback chairs on Craigslist for free. Obviously, white furniture in a house with six children is not ideal. I got the idea to dye the furniture hot pink (to go into our master bedroom) using RIT fabric dye. They came out PERFECT! Do you ever get bored of the same old furniture color? Well, now there’s a fun and easy way to change it up – with Rit dye! You can dye almost any kind of furniture, from wood to fabric. Plus, the possibilities are endless when it comes to colors. So if you’re looking for a new way to spice up your home décor, read on for instructions on how to dye furniture with Rit dye.
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about this process so I have attached the whole tutorial for you it’s such a simple process and so easy and fun:)
How to dye furniture
Rit dye is a common method for dyeing furniture. It is a safe and effective way to color furniture, and it can be used on a wide variety of materials. To use rit dye, you will need to mix the dye with water, and then apply the solution to the furniture. You can also use rit dye to color fabric, and it is also a popular choice for coloring hair.
Here are the rit dye directions
There are many ways to dye furniture using rit, but here are the directions I used for using Rit Fabric Dye:
1. Preheat your dye pot or bucket according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
2. Add the rit dye powder to the pot or bucket, and stir until the powder is completely dissolved.
3. Add your desired amount of water to the pot or bucket, and stir until the mixture is smooth.
4. Place your furniture pieces into the dye mixture, and let them sit for the desired amount of time.
-In this case I used a paint brush and brushed the chairs with the solution.
5. Rinse your furniture pieces off with cold water, and dry them off with a cloth or paper towel.
-After I rinsed the chairs I let them stay outside in the sun for the rest of the day so they dried completely.
6. Enjoy your new color
The number one question I get it is does Rit dye bleed? I’ve had these chairs for 3 years now and I have never had an issue with the dye coming off on our clothes.
