One may also ask, what is a wire brush finish? The term "wire-brushed" describes a finish for hardwood flooring that involves scraping the wood planks with a hard-bristled wire brush.

How to Use a Wire Brush
- Don protective leather gloves, safety glasses and a dust mask before using a wire brush.

How do you make wood look old with vinegar?
The easiest way to age wood is with things you probably already have in your kitchen. Pour vinegar into the glass jar, filling it about halfway. Shred the steel wool and add it to the jar. Let the steel wool and vinegar sit in the jar uncovered for at least 24 hours.
