I’ve always had a thing for old wooden floors in homes, but thought it took time for them to have the aged look. After watching a wire brush in action at SuperMax Tools, I’ve soon realized that anyone can create a similar well-worn, comfortable look; leaving your floors full of character without having to wait years.

With all the machines and techniques out there today, wire brush distressing may be one of my favorites next to our previous post about Shou Sugi Ban. Here are a few pictures I’ve gathered from other woodworkers that went with this technique to give their floors an older, worn feel.
