Faux Barnwood Garage Doors

If you're lucky enough to have wood garage doors, this is right up your alley. But the tutorial will also work well for any wood on which you're trying to get this color! These garage doors are cedar and once they were stained, they looked legit like barn wood. Check it out:


  • Paint Sprayer or Brush


1.] SAND

If the wood is smooth, you will want to  use a hand sander and 80 grit sandpaper to make sure the wood is opened up, then sanded with 120 to smooth it a little. If the wood is rough sawn, like here, you don't have to sand it. But the wood may take the stain darker. 

2.] STAIN 
Select your Weatherwood stain colour from the color chart {link}, this was stained with Relamation Stain. Just brush or spray on product and allow it to air dry naturally. You can apply a second coat for darker shades.

Reclamation stain will give you a light weathered look, dark grays on cedar.  The wood will dry in about 30 minutes.

2.] SEAL
Protect exterior projects with 2 coats of Weatherwood Exterior Waterproofer!
