How to Make the Perfect Barn Wood Stain

Barn Wood Stain

Achieve the perfect Barn Wood Stain and skip the harsh chemicals. Fill a mason jar with white vinegar and add one steel wool sponge. Close the lid and wait 24-48 hours. Over time the vinegar will break down the steel wool fibers and the liquid will become a rusty orange color.

In the second mason jar, fill the container with 1 part water, 1 part rusty vinegar solution. Make sure to wear gloves and remove all jewelry. Apply the solution to the wood with a paintbrush. Repeat until the desired color is achieved.

This process is called Wood Oxidizing. Not only does it look beautiful, but it also creates a protective water resistant seal on the wood.

The trick, that you might not read on other blogs, is to mix in water. This creates a beautiful grayish brown finish and is a useful tool for controlling the stain color.
