I use Vintage Wood on a lot of different woods, from oak to pine. I find keeping one can marked as “watered down” and one can full strength, I can choose a lite stain verses a darker one.
It allows me to deepen the color in stages if I need.
I used this product on a 135 year old cupboard that was my grandparents. It looks great! I am hoping g it lasts another 135 years!
Love vintage wood! So easy to use.
My husband found this old gun rack in the garage and I used better with age and it turned out fantastic thanks to you Amy Tanya
This is an amazing product! I have used this for my candlesticks and other items for my shop and my customers are loving them! Such a beautiful natural aged look compared to any other product I've used to get this effect. 100% recommend!
Fantastic! We used white oak and it turned out unique, beautiful and perfect for our living room!
Great product. Easy to use. It’s fun to see how the wood changes
It’s great really brings out the wood color loving it !
Used several coats to get the desired darkness. Easy to use and cool!
I love the simplicity of this product...get a beautiful look without paint ....easy to use
I took an built orange oak linen cabinet and it transformed beautifully. I love this product. Are use the better with age and Amy’s cerusing wax. The hard part was stripping it. Everyone who’s seen this has left it.
It worked so well on two raw wood side tables I got from Africa..it gave the tables a lovely toned expensive look.. I’m getting ready to do a big beautiful teak wood dinning table I got from India.. I will post pictures once I’m done…
This is an oak table that was sanded down and painted with better with age. It came out amazing!
Worked great! We used it on our Calico Hickory. Have not installed the cabinets in the kitchen yet so can't give a full picture. Thank you for q great product.
I love the the aged look that my coffee table now has. I love the look!

Bought an old card catalog and used this on the body of it. The piece was made out of different woods. This married the woods to a beautiful gray finished. It did take multiple applications. Very happy with it
I LOVE ALL YOUR PRODUCTS!!!
I love this stuff. Getting a distressed grey finish has always been a complicated process, and usually looks somewhat contrived. With Better With Age and the CertainTeed it's a simple 2 step process. And both steps are easy. You put it on and walk away. I would like to point out, that is going to look brown at first. And it won't change in some cases, until after you put on the wax. So don't freak out... like i did... when it turns brown instead of grey. Remember, it's a 2 step process. I wish this review section would let me post more than one photo. I could've posted a before and after photo. I posted the before, so you could see how brown it was after drying for 12 hours. It was very brown. As soon as i added the wax and started to work it in, the color began to change to a beautiful distressed grey. The pieces in the photo are scraps i used as test pieces. The lighter one is pine , the other birch plywood. I also noticed that the higher the grit that the wood has been sanded with, the lighter it ends up being. I wouldn't sand beyond 150 if you want it to have more color.
This product is incredible! It transformed our red table into a vintage/ grey gorgeous restoration hardware lookalike! Thank you!!
First project with BWA and it was so easy for amazing results!
Used Better than Age , and cerusing wax.
Love the farmhouse look this gave my kitchen table and the seat of my chairs. I sanded them to bare wood then brushed on the Better With Age. I think my table was pine so the color was a medium brown. The difference happens when you apply the cerusing wax. It turned a beautiful worn gray.
Used on an oak threshold... oak really works well with this! Not as gray as I was hoping for but more of a blend of light and dark browns with a dust of gray. Can't wait to try it on more!!
This was a very easy process. It gave the wood an aged look, and that’s what I was going for.
I purchased this antique side table with the intent of redoing the finish somehow. I am thrilled with the results I achieved using Better With Age.
When I used Vintage Wood the first time, I was hooked! Turned 3 drab orange pine tables after sanding down, into 3 fab barn wood tables!! It is a must for my painting.
Better with Age - On raw wood floor = Fabulous!!!!
I recently purchased an 1840’s farmhouse and one of the bedroom floors had been sanded down to raw wood and left unfinished by the previous owners. I decided to take a chance (as I was not certain of what exactly the type of wood it was) and try Better with Age on it and Cerusing Wax. And boy I’m glad I did!!! I love love love it :) Below are the before, during and after. The after photo shows (on right side) after waxed and buffed. On left side of the after photo is prior to buffing wax.
