Can I Dye My Chair?

We have recently put an addition on our home. My mother-in-law has given me a gorgeous wing back chair, but the fabric doesn’t work anywhere in the house. I know I could make a slip cover, but I like the texture of the existing fabric. Is it possible to dye the chair as is or will I ruin the piece?

Dear Stephanie,
Dyeing is not an option here. You could try spray-on fabric paint (available at crafts stores) if you really want to experiment. The easiest and best thing would be to look for a new fabric that pleases you. Have the chair recovered or make slip covers.
