Techniques to make wood artifacts look more valuable have been used
since the time of ancient Egypt when veneers imitated valuable woods. In the late 1800s, though, the invention of aniline dyes that would stain hard, resistant woods led to an explosion of interest in fake antiques and faux finishes. Throughout the 20th century, techniques were created to age wood to look old. By the 1960s, antiquing techniques were used by crafters to make new furniture appear old. In the 1980s, the term “shabby chic” was coined to refer to decorations that appeared old and weathered, but had an air of good taste. Distressing wood with paint is an inexpensive way to achieve that effect.
