Distress wood? I use coarse files, claw hammers, chains (reg. and chain-saw types), keys, anything. Beat on or drag across the wood, then sand down rough edges. Be inventive!
I put loose change in a sock and whack it.
Excellent. Thank you. I like the idea of taking chains and using socks with change. Thank you.
Best to you,
Hi Marsha - the coins in a sock is a really good idea, as is the chain. However, with the chain, be sure that you don't hit the edge and break off pieces of wood. Easy does it until you get the feel of what you're doing so that you don't over do. Good luck with this project.
Thank you. Good idea to go slowly. Can always add more...
