Barnwood-Looking, Home Depot Barn Doors

Barnwood-Looking, Home Depot Barndoors with Weatherwood

This week we're working our way up the Oregon coast and boy, did it get cold fast! We will be in Seattle for a month. Does anyone have any recommendations for us to do or see? What about at Christmas time?
I thought I'd share a quick little project that will take your $$ and give it a $$$$ look! This sliding barn door was made from brand new raw wood and turned into authentic looking barnwood! Here's how to get the look.

Materials 




Directions 

1. SAND-ISH 
Spray/Paint the door with paint thinner. This opens up the wood grain and prepares it to be stained the same way facial toner opens your pores.

(For using a spray gun.)

(For using a brush.)
2. STAIN
Strain the Reclamation stain and then use the gravity sprayer to drench the wood. Spray the wood evenly and allow the stain to air dry. (See top video).
You can also use a brush to apply the stain (2nd video, above). Apply and let air dry. Wait a hour for the stain to dry.

3. TOPCOAT
Spray the Varnish topcoat, 2-3 coats for superior strength.

Isn't it pretty? We have a ton of clients use our stains on barn doors, everything from custom made ones to cheaper options from Home Depot. Since the measurements don't need to be perfect, another inexpensive choice would be to check with local mills to see if they have any "boneyard" doors. These are doors no one wants and you can purchase hand made doors at deep discounts.
