I assume this is a wooden structure

there are many natural oils such as linseed oil that are or were used for staining and preserving wood that re not toxic.

here are more ideas: "Coffee, tea, vinegar, walnut hulls and even certain berries can be used to stain wood. One simple way to stain wood is to boil tea leaves in two cups of water until you have a deep tea concentrate. Simply brush the hot tea water onto your wood."

I would stain it with tea bags. You want something natural, or else the compost will affect your soil.
