Have you ever dyed a carpet? I purchased a gold/tan carpet a few years ago and somehow I have come to hate the colour. It's possible that when we move it will find a happier home and the colour will be more to my liking again. I'm planning for the worst though and thinking this carpet may have outlived its welcome.
I have searched the web for advice on results about dying with Rit and there seems to be a strong division between those who have successfully dyed and those who say the colour comes off on socks and clothes.
The problem seems to be that Rit dye needs to be rinsed and obviously this isn't possible with a carpet.
I found this great tutorial at Leaf House blog on creating a chevron rug with dye. The result is so great that I do believe she has instilled the confidence to go forward with the project.
If anyone has tried dying a carpet, please let me know how it went.
