To dye or not to dye?

I got quite tired of having dark rugs in the bathroom and decided to get something light when we first moved to our current nest one year ago. After only one day I remembered why I don't ever buy white rugs. I had to wash them once a day! Of course I didn't.. who does? Instead I'd wash them, put them on the floor, then put them back in the laundry basket the next day; where they lay until laundry day.
So my bathroom has been without rugs 90% of the time.

While spring cleaning last week I found my bottle of brown dye.

*light bulb moment*

Now my rugs match my towels. I love it when things fall into place :)

*sigh* much better

    Isn't dying fabric fun? I have been doing some of that this spring (dying old sheets and refashioning from the results) and it's been great. And thanks for following my blog. :-)

  2. Indeed it is! Although this project got a bit messy.. it was still very refreshing to do :) and I love your blog! So many ideas and so many things I want to try... let's just say I'm going to have a fun summer hehe.
    Thanks for following mine :)

  3. Hey...I have the same white rug. There's only the two of us but it still gets so dirty!!!! I want to try to dye it too. Vika and I have been wanting to try to dye something because we have never done that before. So I guess this would be perfect for a first project especially since I know you did it to the same rug and it turned out!

  4. Yeah I noticed that when we were over last time! Go for it! It's fun!
