I have posted a few painting techniques in the past, take a look at my most recent one which I used for some fall pumpkins. The thing is, I really don’t like using chemicals. It’s pretty hot here in Arizona, and I hate using chemicals in my home, so if I can use a no chemical solution to get the same results, then I’m all in! Today I was cleaning out my under the sink flip out drawer. It was looking really rusty and dirty and then I had a light bulb moment! If by leaving my Brillo pads in that drawer creates a rusty finish, then who says I couldn’t do the same for wood? Using tea bags (which can stain pretty nicely as well) I created this new finish for my wooden wall ladder.
The dirty drawer shelf that inspired me to get this look on my wood.
For this project you’ll need:
- Brillo pads
- hot water
