|People have been asking me how to
weather their plow handles. I found this
on the Internet. I have not tried it my self.
But it may help you.
|Here's what you need: Another method but it looks like you can make them darker.
White vinegar from the supermarket. Any brand will do, but you may need at least a gallon
for a decent sized room and more for a very large room such as a living room.
Lots of steel wool. Preferably a fine, very fine, or ultra-fine grade with minimal impurities or
additives (no SOS, stainless steel or anything of that nature, you'll see why.)
Lots of soft rags. Most hardware stores will have great prices on bags of T-shirt material
rags, which are perfect, but even old bath towels will do.
A couple hours of free time.
Some bags of tea for extra color, even a bit of water-based stain for tinted colors if desired.
I chose to go without including these.
1) Half-empty the bottle of white vinegar. You may set aside the vinegar you had to remove
for anything else.
2) Insert several bunches of steel wool into the bottle of vinegar, making them as
submerged as possible.
3) If desired, add several bags of tea, a bit of water-based stain for extra color.
4) Cover the bottle and allow to sit anywhere from 12 hours overnight to 2 days. The longer
you allow it to sit, the more the steel wool will break down into the vinegar and even if you
can't see it, the mix will be more potent (darker when applied to wood).
5) Prepare the wooden object or surface you wish to apply the vinegar to. This works by far
the best on fresh or sanded wood. Any residue from pre-stain, beeswax, and other
substances can make application quite sloppy and time consuming.
6) Open the vinegar bottle. Some warm air will probably escape as you open it; this is
normal although the immediate smell may not be cologne-quality. If you can access the
steel wool through the opening, then go ahead and remove it. If not, you can just cut above
the liquid until the vinegar bottle functions as a bowl.
7) Take a pad of steel wool and scrub it smoothly but firmly across the object as evenly as
possible. Don't be surprised if you see little or no color at first. The wood will react over the
course of several minutes and perhaps not show the "permanent" outcome for a day.
8) Take a handful of damp rags and wipe the area down firmly, attempting to mix any
streaks or blobs the steel wool left
9) Wipe thoroughly with dry rags.
By the time you've done all of this, you should notice that the wood you've applied the mix to
has gradually darkened. The smell of the vinegar will eventually clear out, and on the
upside, vinegar is actually a great cleaning product and extremely mold-resistant.
On light pine, this will result in a golden-red with a dull gray hue and flat texture. On oak,
this will result in blackening. On red cedar, this will result in a black/gray/pink swirl. I've
seen the mix applied to pine with a blue water-based stain with some interesting but very
I included a before/after photo with the article to illustrate my end-result when utilizing this
aging technique on my pine walls. Conclusion: They nearly identically resemble the
half-century old wood in the downstairs living room and create almost a medieval
aesthetic when combined with stone or ceramic flooring. I simply couldn't get the same
subtle look with stain!
