Do you know how to get this look?

naturepersonJune 2, 2009

I am making a wreath for my front door and would like to know how to get this aged look on my little wooden birdhouses that I'm adding to it. How would you do this? And if I get a paint pen to write on the birdhouse afterwards, will I need to seal it first in order to keep the paint pen from soaking into the wood? Thanks for your help.

I cant really tell from the picture too well what the actual aged look is, but I have done a lot of projects that I have made look aged simply by painting the project, then using sandpaper on all the edges.
