Coffee Stain

A few weeks ago, hubby constructed a pallet bench for my back porch.
I was so glad to have a place to take off my muddy garden boots before coming in.
I was also glad that he had taken my challenge to use only scrap wood.

He then challenged me as I looked at the various colors of woods on one bench 
(the legs were light, the bench was weathered) - 
Could I use only items I had on hand to stain the bench?

A quick search led me to a coffee stain.
Though not the prettiest result, it did even out the woods
and I imagine that on nice woods, it would be absolutely beautiful.

ingredients - coffee, vinegar, and steel wool
Before on Top - After on Bottom

I can't argue with free!
