Week 17: Tea-Staining

I have an amazing teak frame that I picked up at a thrift store. The silk surround on it has seen better days, though. I've been wanting to tea stain it in hopes that that would be a way to cover the marks on the silk, but still be in keeping with the era of the frame itself. Problem: I don't drink tea. Hm. Mate cocido is kinda like tea, right...? *fingers crossed*

Can't wait to see the finished result. (Shhh. Don't tell anyone. I have both tea AND coffee in the WAY BACK of my craft closet, for staining purposes only of course!)

I'm anxious to know how it turns out! (Papa has herb teas, but I don't know if they work or not...)
