Faux barn wood finish

By Tammy Schultz, owner at Redesigned Frame Of Mind in Acme, PA.

These solid pine doors were a custom project for a client who  couldn't find a stain color she was happy with,so we went old school. First step was a heavy coat of strong brewed tea, after that dried we did a coat of premixed vinegar with 000 steel wool disolved in it. We sealed it and,wha laaa- great faux barn wood doors!
