Do you love the look of doilies, but have a hard time integrating them into your home's decor? Vintage doilies can have a yellowed look to them, due to age, or have stains on a section. To instantly update their worn color, soak them in a strong dye bath. I use Rit Liquid Dye for my home-dying projects. Since doilies are most often made from cotton, the dye takes easily. Look at how beautiful this doily is in its updated blue hue. No one will accuse you of sporting grandma style when your doilies are deep purple, blue, or even hot pink!
