Do you love the look of aged furniture? The weathered gray wood that has been around for years? Have you been searching for a piece? Well, why not transform a piece instead of searching and waiting? It’s easy and quick to do and you don’t need to buy a formula to do it. All you need is some MudPaint, a vinegar and steel wool solution, brushes, and sandpaper. Follow these steps to learn how.
Step 1: Rip up one piece of 0000 steel wool and stick the small pieces in a glass bottle covered with vinegar. Let it sit for 24 hours until the steel wool is dissolved.
Step 2: Prep your surface by wiping it down with a rag. If it has chipping paint, sand to smooth the surface.
Step 3: Mix paint with some water to thin it out so that when you paint the wood grain will show through. Paint your piece with a thin layer of paint. Learn how to paint at /how-to-paint-wood-furniture/
Step 4: When the paint has dried which is really quick, lightly sand the piece. Apply the vinegar solution with a brush and let sit for a while. In about an hour, your piece will start looking gray. Allow to dry.
Step 5: Determine if you want to dry brush additional colors on. If so, dry brush the next layer with MudPaint’s China White. Allow to dry.
Step 6: If you want to add a darker layer, dry brush MudPaint’s Just Black or Charcoal on. Allow to dry.
