The Barnwood Treatment

Hi readers!  I just can’t wait to show you what I was up to this past weekend.  Let’s just say I was up to my ears in barnwood {well, faux barnwood}!

{Seeing this picture still makes me squeal!}  As you can see, I took a break from furniture to tackle a ceiling for some amazing Refresh Home clients.  Their new home is and I was so happy to be a part of it.  Here is the before…

The clients wanted this pine plank ceiling to look like old barnwood.  I was more than pleased with the end results.

I know that I will receive a lot of requests for a tutorial for this treatment but I’m keeping it in my back pocket for now.  While I share the recipes for almost all of my finishes, I am planning to market this to clients so it would not be a smart business move to divulge everything.  Thanks for understanding, sweet readers!  Have you tackled a faux barnwood project?

    Can I make my floor look like this? I have a 1790s house and a small budget and I need cheap flooring , can I do this with plywood and cut it into wide planks and make fake barn wood flooring out of it? LOVE this! Any info would be great! Thanks.
