Ikea Henriksdal Green Dyed Chair covers – DIY

The Ikea Henriksdal Chair covers are really easy to dye to get the color you want, I now have a set of red, black and decided to do a green set.  Here is a post with some pics of me dying some white Ikea Henriksdal green.

Getting started

You can pick up the plain white Ikea Henriksdal chair covers at Ikea, at this link HERE from amazon. Here are mine getting ready to be colored. They are sitting on my red covers I did earlier.

First I prepped the area to keep the stain from getting on anything as I was going to do this indoors. I used some tarps to protect the area in the kitchen.

The Dye I used

Here are the colors I mixed. This time I used RIT Dye (in my last post when I did the Red Chair covers HERE I used dylon brand dye.)

The colors I chose for this batch of Ikea Henriksdal covers was:

I used all four bottles per tub, one of each color.

The colors of dye i will be using, RIT Evening Blue, RIT Emerald, Rit Lemon Yellow, Rit Kelly Green


Here are some great gloves I used to protect my hands HERE.

I had to use some pots to hold the chair covers down in the ink as they wanted to float to the top.

This is what they looked like wet. They were darker wet, but lightened up after drying.

When wet the chair covers look darker then they will be when dried.


This is what they look like after being dried for just a bit, I did a hang dry to finish drying them.

This is the color of the chair cover after drying for a bit. Ikea Henriksdal Green.


Finished the Ikea Henriksdal Green covers.

Since I like to change colors in the room one in a while, I really like this option of having some separate chair covers in separate colors to go with my mood. As mentioned above, you can see in my other post I have dyed some red chair covers earlier, and also I recently did some black ones as well. This is one of the reasons I like the Ikea Henriksdal chairs so much. They are really versatile.

You can see more pictures of the red covers in this post here.
