Restoration Hardware's "Natural" Color

Let's get to this awesome project. It's my favorite kind of post! Where usually hard to achieve colors are a piece of cake! The inspiration comes from Restoration Harware's "natural" color.  This look is easy to achieve and it's just a subtle aging.


  • Pine Furniture 


1.] SAND: Begin by sanding the wood piece, that way the wood will easily accept the stain and create a good pallet to begin your work. Start with a rough grit with a 120 grit. 

2.] STAIN: Once the wood has been stripped or sanded back down to raw, you can stain it using Weatherwood Stain's Reclamation stain. Simply apply Reclamation with a sponge brush, brushing product onto sanded wood and allowing it to air dry. Allow to dry one hour. You'll see in the above time-lapse, the color change is subtle and is pretty similar to Restoration Hardware's "Natural" color. 

3.] SEAL: Apply a wax or varnish seal coat to protect the piece. Dead Flat Varnish will give the look of raw wood, but the protection of cabinetry!

Don't forget, if you're looking for a subtler white effect, Weatherwood White Maintenance Oil will do a great job. This was a custom piece of furniture, loosely inspired by Anthropologie's Betelline Coffee Table using a poplar top, Reclamation stain and White Maintenance Oil finish. We love the all-wood take on this beautiful coffee table!

Using #WeatherwoodStains you can get this look!
