Are you brave enough to pour dye into your front load washer?? I did!
I saw this on Young House Love – her pic:
Reading the post made me think, I can do that!! So I bought the same stuff, the iDye – I wanted to match my bedroom wall, which is a deep royal blue. The couch on the opposite wall needed color – – the before:
But I wasn’t giving up. On to round 2 – – I went with “Navy” instead of blue – – at round 1 I thought navy would be too dark, which is why I went blue – – but navy was perfect, see:
Side note – you know how socks always get caught in that rubber gasket thing around the door opening – – um, check in there before you run a load of dye through – – just saying…..
One day I might actually do a big reveal post on my bedroom redo, but that would require finishing the said room, and I’m all about doing projects 80% of the way then moving on to the next thing……
Love the sock 😉 that would be me – I bet the room looks great even at your 80% (which just might be others 100%)
Looks great! I am a fan of dyeing things in the washing machine but make sure you have cleaned your seals really well with a damp cloth before the next load. I learnt the hard way, I now have a green and white duvet with an orange stripe in the middle!!
That blue is GORGEOUS! But I would be so worried about the next (few) loads of laundry. Did you have any problems (outside of the pretty sock)?
I literally laughed out loud when I saw the sock-now you just have to dye the other one 🙂
I have done dyes in the wash before, but I have a top loader (which is different for sure). Your project turned out great! I get my projects done to the 50-60% mark…so you’re doing pretty good at 80%!
