Well I found a recipe to take new wood and make it look old and weathered. I kind of came on this by accident.
I found a recipe online that uses vinegar and steel wool. So I tried it, but it wasn’t dark enough for me. So I though since I use coffee or tea to age paper and fabric just maybe that would work.
Take a glass jar and fill 3/4 full of vinegar, then drop a piece of steel wool into the jar and screw the lid on. For 3-4 days shake the jar.
Just apply with a paint brush and store with lid on. I’ve had mine for about a month now, I’ve even added a little more vinegar to the mix, and it still works great.
Do you have a recipe to age wood?
