..for bare wood, unfinished or stripped furniture, stain it the desired color and put on 2 coats of shellac, (fine steel wool before 2nd coat), then a coat of paste wax..this is authentic looking, though it requires periodic waxing and wont hold up to water rings from drink glasses. ..alternatively, your local paint store or decorating center should have a selection of paint finishes, such as a pickled look, or a paint undercoat with a surface glaze put on over the paint and then wiped off.
