Use Pantry Items to Get Weathered Wood Look in No Time

Blue Roof Cabin

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...

Mimi from Blue Roof Cabin didn't like the finish on this oak paddle, so she picked up a few tips from Pinterest and got to weathering.

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.
