1 Answer

Tea staining is an innovative method of painting. It offers a cheap and natural alternative to traditional painting techniques, and can be used to color everything from living room walls to kitchen cabinets. Tea-stained kitchen cabinets add a warm, earth-toned glow to your kitchen and only require a bit of patience. Plus, tea staining is eco-friendly as well. Lay plastic sheeting under the kitchen cabinets you will be staining. Tea staining is a very drippy, runny and messy process. Fill the pot with water, and allow it to come to a boil. Add tea bags to the boiling water. One tea bag per cup of water is a safe measurement. Remove the pot from the heated burner, and allow the tea to steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Dip the paintbrush into the steeped tea and begin staining the kitchen cabinets with varied brushstrokes to create a textured pattern. Allow the tea to dry completely. If the cabinets are not stained as darkly as you would like, repeat the process. more
