DIY vinegar wood stain

Decor, DIY

Looking for an inexpensive wood stain? You can make your own wood stain with vinegar: take steel wool and soak it in about 1/2  cup of vinegar for 24-48 hrs. The longer you soak it, the darker the stain will be. It’s fun to experiment with – I used this stain to darken the rim of my DIY drum shade and it turned out perfect! For other uncommon ways to use vinegar, take a look at this great blog article by Today’s Nest.
