Decorating on a budget sometimes means getting creative. Use this DIY wood stain to make new wood look old. This homemade vinegar/tea stain is one of my absolute favorite ways to stain wood and it is great for making newer wood appear aged and weathered. This non-toxic homemade stain is one of the best cheap decorating ideas because it doesn't cost much to make. In fact, you may already have everything you need on hand! It is one of the best DIY projects for staining wood because you can use any type of vinegar, coffee, and tea, allowing for various looks.
