Weathering Furniture

Want to make that dinged up chest look weathered and antique? Give it a helping hand.

Take it to our local auto body shop and ask them to put it in their sandblasting booth. That alone will make it look instantly weathered, adding years to the look of the furniture.

To make the metal hinges look weathered too, rub vinegar on the metal and leave for at least 24 hours. The metal will get "pocked" and start looking antique. Wipe away the vinegar when you get the look you want.
