I’ve always loved rustic furniture, but what I wasn’t clear about how to stain a piece of furniture to get the rustic look I wanted. I knew you needed to do a little more than just put the stain on it to achieve the rustic look I wanted.
One of my favorite things about buying unfinished furniture, or making it, is the finished result. It’s the details that gives a piece an authentic rustic look. It’s the details that make a world of difference.
If you’re anything like me, I love the rustic primitive look. By using this technique I can achieve the desired results quite easily. In my home I have a lot of rustic furniture and I’ve mixed it up with some eclectic accent pieces.
There are many ways to finish furniture. Some people use a tea stain, vinegar and some torch the wood. I found this technique to be the easiest and the results to be the best.
I recently refinished a bench for my entryway and it looks so incredible. It’s amazing how a piece of furniture can change up the look of your home! I get such a great feeling every time I see my bench. I’m pretty proud of it!
