Aging wood for new miniature project

New Project: Miniature "Restoration Hardwood" Style Beds

I spent this morning aging wood for my new project underway. I plan on creating a twin bed, a double bed, and a few vintage signs using weathered wood. I am channeling Restoration Hardware for this project. The wood turned out beautiful. I have to let it dry completely, but so far, the colors are perfect. If you are interested in learning how to weather wood, check out my tutorial, it's super easy.

Aged wood using white vinegar and fine steel wool
This is going to make a nice bed

Weathered wood, nice color variations
