dye carpet?

I just moved into a new home that we built and relized that the carpet we picked is too light. My grandmother had her carpet dyed years ago and had great results. She paid someone to do it and I want to find out if there is a way to do it yourself. Please help! amydawn

DIY is very very hard but possible.
first you need to find out what type of fiber your carpet is.

Why would you want to dye a carpet? If you want a darker color just bring the neigbor kids in and they will get it darker for you.
