Step 8: Staining and Aging the Wood

To give the wood and aged feel I did several things: I used the edge of my sander to scrape it up, I used a blunt ended screw driver to poke some holes in it, and just banged it up in general. After I was all done with that I used Minwax wood stain to stain the wood. And then sealed it with Minwax Wipe On Poly.
I like it. Wouldn't this scratch the floor if it was on hardwood instead of carpet?
It sure would. But if you can drill into the metal to attach the top with screws, you can get little screw on rubberized feet to attach to the bottom and save your floor.
That's gorgeous!
