I could tell when I bought this table that it was originally made to look antiqued, but also had some additional "antiquing" from wear and tear. I liked the table as it was, but after awhile I decided I didn't care for the wear and tear spots around the edges that showed more of the light bare wood. So I figured I would do the same thing to this table that I would do to any piece of furniture that I purposely antique. So I got out my little can of minwax dark walnut stain and went to work.
1. Take a q-tip and dip it into the stain of your choice.
2. Apply stain on q-tip to spot of bare wood that you desire antiqued.
3. Take a lint free rag and wipe off excess stain from wood. Note- the longer you leave the stain on the darker it will become.
4. Let dry and seal entire surface with top-coat.
