Love the look of weathered wood, but don't want years of waiting? You can make new wood look old, with just a few common pantry items! We bet they're in your kitchen right now...

With just a cup of strong tea and a soak of vinegar and steel wool, she gave the paddle some serious history. It looks like it's been left on a dock forgotten for years.
