Barnwood-Looking Plank Ceiling

I'll fill you all in on how my husband launched a second business called, "Dingewood." I'm releasing a glimpse this week, and I look forward to telling you how we went from a stain company to a wood company. I'm going to explain the good, the bad, and the ugly Thank you all for your love and support. 


  • Dingewood Siding: Siding & Trim 
  • Nails should be stainless steel, high tensile strength aluminum, or galvanized.
  • Stud finder 
  • Trim, if desired
  • Finishes: Installed wood may be top-coated with WeatherWash brand topcoats. 


1. Square Footage
First, determine the amount of lumber you will need. You will need to determine the square footage of your space by multiplying the length x width of your project, making sure to subtract for windows and doors.

2. Quantity
Next determine how much siding to purchase. Use the charts below to determine coverage on your Dingewood purchase.

3. Horizontal Application
In horizontal application, start at the bottom and work up, with the groove edges facing downwards. Leave a gap .5” at each wall to allow for expansion and contraction. Siding up to 6 inches wide can be blind nailed with one siding nail per bearing toe-nailed through the base of each tongue. See the drawing below.

4. Nails
Nails should be installed at an angle so they cannot work their way back out of the wood. Nails should be applied with enough force that they must penetrate 1-1/4 inches into solid wood and are flush with the wood.

5. Rows
Measure the length of the wall for your first row and install your first board. Butt the second board against the first and work across the wall, until the final piece of the first row. Make any necessary cuts for the last piece and install. Check every few rows that you are still parallel with the first row or the wall. To fill the wall exactly, it may be necessary to fit a board or two together loosely.
