Matching old wood with new

Posted By: Teresa

We have an old staircase which I have stripped free of gloss paint and think that the wood is pitch pine. We need to match in ballustrades and unfortunately cannot obtain the reclaimed wood to match in. We have therefore decided to try and match the new timber with the old but do not really know how to go about this as whatever wax or varnish we initially use is going to look different on each wood. Do Do you have any ideas on how to make new wood look older/distressed or to match in with older wood?
