There’s something about a gracefully aged antique that catches your eye. Then again, maybe it only looks like an antique. Learn how to add decades of character in just a few hours.
If you’re like me and are willing to apply a bit of elbow grease and common sense, it’s possible to turn a new piece of furniture you’ve recently made, or perhaps one you recently purchased, into a faux antique. As long as you’re honest and fess up to the fact, there’s nothing wrong or unscrupulous about it. Come along with me as I add years of patina to a rocking chair I recently came across. Using the techniques I’ll share with you, you’ll be able to give any piece that “aged graceful” look. It’s easier than you’d think.
