On furniture that is. I love taking something old and worn out and making it look like I want it to. This is not the first time I've used dye. I frequently dye stained white pants or shirts. I once dyed a sofa by hand. And my best friend and I dyed her son's yucky bedroom carpet--it turned out lovely. I inheirited husband's mohters rattan furniture for my sun room. It is a beautiful rattan framed sofa and chair, but the mauve floral pattern just does not match the rest of my house. So, I picked up some fabric dye and dyed it today. It turned out a beautiful color---exactly what I wanted---unfortunately, it also fell apart at the seams. So...it's on to new slip covers!
