Before we get started, you will need to know how to make my DIY Wood Stain. So go ahead and make that, because it needs to sit for at least 24 hours before you can use it! This will give you time to gather up all your other supplies and do any prep work! So let’s talk about all the other supplies you will need.


Supplies:

– DIY Wood Stain

or (or any appropriate kind of white paint)



– Protective Eye Wear (safety first!)


Tutorial:


Let’s talk about our wood real quick. For this tutorial I am using regular ole wood shims, so depending on the type of wood you will be working with, the overall look might vary. Different woods soak up things differently. I just want you to be aware of that before you get started, so you might want to test it somewhere if you have a specific look in mind, ok? Ok! So first you are going to stain your wood with the Minwax Dark Walnut using your lint free cloth (or brush) and let this dry. If you are finishing a piece of furniture you might want to give it a light sanding when you are done. I didn’t do this since I was just working with wood shims, but you should sand between coats if you are looking for a nice finish!

Once that has dried (and sanded if necessary) You are going to dry brush on a thin coat of white acrylic paint. If you aren’t familiar with dry brushing first put some paint on a paper plate and spread it out kinda thin, then take a dry brush (I like to use the cheap ones from Wal Mart for this) and just get a tiny bit of paint on the end of the bristles. Try and ignore my wintery dried out hands and focus on the paint ; )

Now you are going to just brush this along the wood, re dip in the paint as necessary, but don’t get carried away because you want your brush to remain dry, so get every bit of paint off you can before you get more on there. When you are done it should look like this.

Once your paint dries, you are going to sand and distress it with your Grade 2 Steel Wool. This is where you are going to want to wear your gloves and wear protective eye wear. Trust me on the gloves, steel wool will be sticking out of your fingers! No fun! Keep sanding until you are happy with the look!

Now clean off any dust residue on your wood, and you are going to apply a coat of the DIY Wood Stain that we just made with the same grade steel wool you used to make your stain! Let fully dry before you apply another coat, because the color does change quite a bit once dry. When you are happy with how it looks, give it a light sanding with a dry piece of the steel wool you applied the stain with. So here is a visual of how the process will look and how the wood changes.

Now you can seal it with your favorite Polyacrylic and finish up any final steps you might have!

Thanks Lisa! You actually want to make sure the paint is dry before you you sand it…. but doing it while it’s still wet could be a cool look too… I might have to go try that now ; ) Thanks for stopping by!

Sanding sealer…. Takes more time and labor but doesn’t yellow…. Apply a light coat and sand lightly… Wipe clean and repeat. My dad taught me this thirty years ago. We applied seven light coats and the finish lasted for years… If it dulls after fifteen to twenty years, all you do is lightly sand and apply a couple of coats the same way you did originally.

To get it cloesest to this look, yes, you would need to sand them down. Mainly because you can’t stain over paint like that, so you would loose all possibility of getting that wood look. It also depends onw hat kind of doors they are. Are they standard closet type doors or are they real wood/lumber? Typical doors won’t have that wood grain to it, so that would play into the look of it quite a bit as well.

Hi Cliff, I haven’t tried it with any other colors. I have been wanting to test out a red for a barn wood look, but haven’t had a chance. It can certainly be done, but since you are dry brushing it on, the color doesn’t appear as rich as it does in the can. So when I put a bright white on there, it looks aged and is slightly see through. You can always paint it on a little thicker and just really sand down the spots you want the stain to show through.

I am going to be trying all you’ve shown us, see which I like best. So glad you shared all these great techniques.

When I have steps to do on one project I just do one of those then work on something else for while. I set a timer so I don’t forget (or I will forget when I get so engrossed). Manage to get time consuming things done that way and other projects worked on. Don’t have small children so can keep working. Oh yeah there’s the hubs, almost as bad a small kid, thinks when he hollers I should drop what I’m doing and run to him, of course him coming to me would be out of the question. Not saying this nasty, just telling like it is. But I love him, 46 yrs end of this month. If he could find some thing to do away from house once in while that would be ok too. Sometimes 24/7 is bit much for me.

Enjoy the season. If I can remember how I’ll send you photo of how my boards turn out. Don’t hold your breath tho as I tend to be digitally challenged. Just got new computer yesterdawy and haven’t opened box yet, half afraid of how to get going with it. sigh.

Hi Janina! Yes, you want the wood to be in the condition you want it before you apply any stain. If you are doing a coffee table, I would suggest applying several coats of polyacrylic to it as a sealer to keep it clean and give it a nice smooth finish, you will sand in between those coats, but if you are looking for a really smooth finish, you definitely want to get it there before any stain. I would also suggest starting with a rough grit sandpaper, and gradually moving up to the very fine, that will give you the best finish : ) Good luck!

Thank you for the great tutorial! Today I built a small storage rack for my kitchen and tryed your method. It looks gorgeous and I love it. First I used dark brown stain, tourquoise colour (chalk paint), white colour (chalk paint) and finished with wax (clear and dark wax).

Tomorrow I will build a second rack for the other side of my kitchen and then you can see it on my blog :-)

Hi Briana, I’m not sure I entirely understand which part of the process you are referring too… but I didn’t ever use the steel wool to that I used in making the stain to apply it with. I used a fresh piece of steel wool to apply it to the wood and gently rubbed it across the top. Steel wool isn’t necessary to apply it with, I just already had it out and on hand. You can just use a foam brush if you would rather do that. The steel wool does get a little messy… and make sure you wear gloves because it will certainly poke you! Good luck and have fun!! Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi Kasey, since it is already finished it probably has a poly finish on it that is somewhat glossy. You can paint over this with the chalk paint and use it as your “stain” but it might change the outcome. What I would suggest if you are going for an older look is to just kind of rough of the stain on the coffee table a little bit and then continue on with the process : ) Good luck!

Hi Holly, I’m not entirely sure of the chemical process behind it, but the vinegar does break down the steel wool… if you leave it in there long enough it will completely dissolve. The coffee really is just to give it a little bit more of a brown color, it’s really just a personal preference. You could certainly try adding more or less to achieve different looks, but I’d just make sure and test it on a scrap piece of wood before making a full commitment ; ) Hope that helps!

Would this technique work on hardwood floors that already have a stain/finish?

You would have to sand them down in order to do that, and honestly I can’t say I would suggest trying this on hardwood floors. That is a huge undertaking and the results do vary. If your like me though and willing to try anything, I’d definitely test it out on a piece of the flooring. The biggest concern I would have is with floors you typically want to poly over the top for protection, but with the white paint involved, poly actually yellows white paint over time.

Good Morning Ashley,

I love this weaathered wood look!! I’m considering doing this on the floors in our new house currently under construction. How do you think it will hold up on floors? I know i’d have to seal with a matte polyurethane for protection. It’s about 2700 sq ft downstairs, so I’m probably a little locco even thinking about doing this!! Any advice would be appreciated!! Thank you, Elizabeth Warford

Hi Elizabeth! Thanks for stopping by. I’m honestly not sure how this would hold up on a floor situation. I created this process for furniture, and I have no real experience with it in that type of setting. My biggest hesitation would be that you really should use a polyurethane on a floor surface for protection, and since this process uses paint, it could yellow the color of your paint, especially with any exposure to the sun. So my gut is telling me I wouldn’t test this out on 2700 square feet, because I’ve never tried it. Sorry I’m not much help, lol!

Thank you, Ashley! Actually, you were helpful! My back thanks you! I would have probably tried this and paid dearly! I want to use some type of distressed finish on our floors-at least on the upstairs (less sq. footage up there). I just saw your technique and thought “Oooh that looks good!!” Thanks again! Will follow you to get your awesome ideas! Elizabeth

Lovely work! I’ve already got a China cabinet with a brown base stain ( the wood is pecan). Can I skip the first step? This cabinet doesn’t even have a poly coat on it but I’d at least give it a light sanding. Than you for your advice!

I want to use this weathered wood to transfer a photo onto. Do you know how this would change the types of paint, stain etc that I would need to get?


Thanks

Beth
