How to age new wood to look old. Apple Cider Vinegar and some Steel Wool (I had no idea what 'grade' steel wool to get, so I got #0 and it worked great).  The vinegar was $1.12 and the steel wool was $3.98, although I only used two out of the 20 or so pieces in there, so I'd say it cost 40 cents.

To Age Wood: Soak steel wool in apple cider vinegar, rub down new wood with the soaked steel wool for an instantly aged wood look

Home-made, all natural wood stain. Using USED coffee grounds, fine-grain steel wool and plain white vinegar.  This is super simple to make, very inexpensive and the results are great! Just combine 1/2 cup used coffee grounds, 1 steel wool pad and enough vinegar to fill a 1 Ltr jar and let sit for 1-2 days. (The longer the stain soaks, the darker it will be). Apply stain with the steel wool pad that's been soaking in the jar, going with the grain.
