How to Make Your Very Own Wood Stain W/ Household Products

My grandfather was a painter, and taught me how to do this when I was young! All you need is some steel wool, vinegar, and an old mason jar (because everything requires a mason jar ; ) You can use instant coffee to give it more of a brown look too! The longer you let it sit, the richer the color gets. UPDATE: If you are applying to actual wood for a finishing project, you will need to apply several coats until you get the desired darkness! It will not appear very dark until it soaks into the wood. I let the stain dry about 15 minutes between coats. It might not be completely dry, but it worked for me. Once, dry it will look very flat in color. You will need to seal it with something to get that "wet" look from the stain. It is really is not an exact science, so please test this out before you try it on something important!

DIY Frame Wall

I decorated a wall in my daughter's shabby chic wall using garage sale frames. I just painted them the colors of her room and hung them up. Then I added a few fabric scraps in one frame using mini clothespins to create a mini bunting. See the full post on my blog: http://cherishedbliss.com/2012/07/shabby-chic-frame-wall.html
