Now if that’s not some fun alliteration I don’t know what is!
I was just scouring the internet for something completely different (black wicker chairs actually) and stumbled upon this shot of a DIY I did a while back for House & Home Magazine with my friend Andrea Mills. It’s a goodie and worth sharing here, I think.
We started with some 100% cotton drapes from Ikea, a bucket, some rubber bands and some dark blue fabric dye.
1. Mix dye according to package directions in large bucket.
2. Scrunch lower quarter of drapes and fasten with rubber bands to create tie dye effect.
3. Dip lower quarter of drapes into dye and let sit according to directions.
4. Carefully remove drapes and rinse dyed portion in the sink. Let dry.
We loved their beachy, fashion-forward effect in a traditional living room with clean white walls. But you could go wild and use them in a multi-patterned, lush and layered bedroom, teen’s room or dressing room maybe. Or even go with a much paler fabric dye and use them in a subtle, sophisticated application. Give ’em a go!
