- Use a floor sander to sand the entire floor. Use a 38-grit disc and switch to a 60-grit disc. Use a 6-inch spinner/edger to get the leftover stain near the edges.
- Vacuum thoroughly to remove all dust and debris.
- Wet a small area of the floor and scrape the area with a scraper. Move around the floor wetting and scraping small areas at a time. Scrape against the grain of the wood to give it a worn look.
- Sweep or vacuum away all of the shavings.
- Hit the floor in random places with the length of a metal chain to leave as many desired dents.
- Use a paint scraper on the floor in a slicing motion to leave random scratches on the floor.
- Gouge the floor in random places with a crowbar.
- Lightly buff the floor with a buffer once all the gouges and marks are in place.
- Apply the first coat of stain with a brush or paint roller.
- Apply the second coat of stain after 12 hours.
