Another video! In this, I show you how to get that perfect grey, weathered wood stain that I used on my dining table. It is a little time consuming but the finished product is so worth it. I actually got the stain idea from City Farmhouse but instead of using Annie Sloan French Linen, I used Lowe’s Beige Shadow (W38005A) and I put DecoArt Clear Soft Touch Varnish as a top coat. It is very important to put a top coat on to protect your wood, seal in the paint, and also keep the table from yellowing over time. All of the paints I used are sample sizes and I think the overall cost came out around $10? To apply all of the paints I used an old t-shirt and cut it into pieces to use a new piece for each color. 

Prep It

  • Steel wool & vinegar mix (put both in a glass jar and let sit for 4 or 5 days then use as stain)
  • Benjamin Moore Texas Leather
  • Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter
  • Lowe’s Beige Shadow (or Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen)
  • DecoArt Clear Soft Touch Varnish
  • Rag or towel
  • Paint brush
  • Gloves
