tea dye!

what’s goin’ on in here?

it’s our assistant stylist dying book pages with tea! how cool is that? it’s so easy to do- just fill up a plastic container like this with water, drop in some tea bags, and then rip out pages from a book and soak them in it! the result are really cool antique-looking pages that you can use for pretty much whatever you want- you could cover an entire wall with them, or they’d look really cool as backing for a photo album or scrap book!

i can’t tell you what we’re doing with them, but you’ll find out soon enough…



  1. If you have an oven, you can brush them with coffee, throw them on a cookie sheet and “bake” them at about 200 degrees until they dry. That makes cool vintage paper, too. But I like this method — no oven!

  2. My mom and I designed one of our bathrooms with old tea-stained farmer’s almanacs. We lined the walls so it looks like wallpaper. A little light bathroom reading.
