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. Dying some white Ikea Henriksdal green was next on my list.

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. The covers they are sitting on are my red covers I did earlier.
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
I mixed these colors for the project. 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:
- BLUE – Rit Evening Blue dye
- Yellow – Rit Lemon Yellow dye
- Emerald – Rit Emerald dye
- Green – Rit Kelly Green dye
I used all four bottles per tub, one of each color.
Protecting my hands was a priority so they didn’t turn green. I used these gloves for this project, you can grab them from amazon HERE.
Needing a way to hold the chair covers down in the ink as they wanted to float to the top, I used some kitchen pots.
One result of being still wet is they look a little darker, but they lightened up after drying.
Drying the covers for just a bit you can see they lightened up, After that I did a hang dry to finish drying them.
Finished the Ikea Henriksdal Green covers.

I like changing colors in the room as a fun way to make a quick impact, I really like this option of having sets of separate chair covers in separate colors to go with my mood. This is one of the reasons I like the Ikea Henriksdal chairs so much. In addition to being really versatile, the price is not that bad either. These green chairs ended up being exactly what I wanted for now.
