Some time ago I started to gradually rework my wooden furniture. I sanded, oiled, varnished and stained but rarely I was able to hit the wood tone that I wanted to create. I like wood which looks old and like it has a story to tell. To find this in pine furniture proved to be not so easy. As always, if I do not know what to do, I started to research on the internet and once again I actually found somethig useful.
What I found was a tutorial on how to mix together a solution of coffee, vinegar and steel wool, which changes wood so it appears to be twenty years older overnight.
Antique Wood Overnight
the solution of coffee, vinegar and steel wool
before edding the solution
just after adding the solution - seems like nothing but wait! It needs a night to darken the wood.
