Aged Wood, in No Time at All

DIY stain: Some finishes can fake decades of wear in a matter of minutes. Here, we mixed ¼ cup of rusty nails with ¾ cup of vinegar and let steep for 24 hours. When applied, the solution reacts quickly with the natural tannins in the wood grain (we used oak), mimicking the weathering that occurs over many years.
