Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week. A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain. A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue. A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain.
Build your own storage bins perfect for any craft room, playroom, kitchen or bathroom. That way you have complete control over the look and finish. Works for chicken nest boxes too! These are like the nesting boxes in our chicken house when I was a kid!
