If you love old barn wood like I do, but cannot get your hands on some (especially due to the cost!), you are going to love this post I found on how to make new wood look old. It is crazy easy and only takes vinegar, a steel wool pad and a cup of really strong black tea.
This tutorial is in fact a 2-for-1 deal. While learning the recipe and technique for the aging of the wood, you will also see how to make your own floor mirror! Jesse from Nine Red goes into great detail showing us exactly how it’s done. I can’t wait to try this myself with some picture frames I had planned to make, but was putting off due to lack of old wood 🙂
