Alternative Finish Option: ‘Barnboard’ Greytone Treatment
A newer colour/finishing option is our barnboard greytone treatment. We were getting requests for a ‘grey barnboard’ colour more often. The issue – only exterior, heavily distressed boards have this color given their exposure to the sun. Such boards are often too distressed to build solid furniture from.
While not the natural colour, through R&D + trial and error our experienced spray finisher Kim managed to get the colour of exterior boards on the internal boards we use. You’ll still see & feel the original distressing & the tight [old growth] wood grain.
We’ve done a few projects with this option already! Check out this desk project we did for a Toronto office (see pics below):
