Staining Wood With Tea




Introduction: Staining Wood With Tea

About: Im a woodworker and restoration painter from Finland with a bloodtype of diy.

You can stain wood with tea!
Q: Why (you might ask)?
A: When you stain wood with tea the wood gets a natural yellow color that is really close to the yelowness that occures when wood ages indoors. So for instance if your repairing a piece of furniture that has become yellow due to age you can use tea to match the color of the old wood on your new pieces and repairs.

The process is simple enough.
You simple make some really strong tea, apply the tea to your new wood and let it dry. Reapply until you reached the desired result!
