    Like many others, I am addicted to Pinterest. I love the constant stream of visual inspiration and the way that it allows me to organize my images. I also love the continuous flow of great ideas that come across my screen…

    Seriously?! -- 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. Log this away for later.

      Natural wood stains - black walnut hulls, strong coffee, tea, blackberries and vinegar. 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. Top with a clear sealant if desired, as some stains fade.

Use the same type of wood you’re staining, stains can look different on different types of wood.
