Distressing a beam...HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!
August 21, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have a cedar constructed beam that I'm going to mount on my kitchen ceiling. I'd like for this beam to look rustic and country. Any suggestions on how to distress it before I stain it are appreciated!!!! Also, I have read to use a hatchet to shape the corners but I'm concerned because the beam is mitered together. I don't want to somehow break it apart. Any alternative without using heavy machinery? Thank you SO much!!!!!
