HOW TO CREATE A FAUX BARN BOARD FINISH

Press board to Barn Board in under an Hour...

I love real wood texture, however some pieces just don’t have it!

 

Here’s I’ll show you how easy it is to create a faux wood texture on almost any surface!

 

I found two junky old particle board tables. They looked just like this one, only with damaged edges and scratches.

Now these tables are a really nice size, plus they stack, so space saving too. I knew I could do something spectacular with them.

 

Never one to shy away from a challenge, I actually refinished my table LIVE on air! Yes, truly! In front of over 100,000 people I created the stunning finish I am sharing with you today.

I am so excited to share this. One thing to note, you can, if you wish, stop after dry brushing, but I do love the depth and age that the Black Wax brings to the game.

 

So, in just 4 simple steps, is what I did.

 

STEP 1:

 

  • Prep your item with a good clean, and a light sand.
  • Paint a coat of Fusion™ Mineral Paint in Putty.
  • Allow to dry to the touch.

STEP 2:

 

  • .
  • If it is a little thin, add more Sandstone. You want the consistency of frosting. Roughly paint a thin layer all over the newly dried paint surface.
  • Following the instructions on your Wood Graining Tool, drag it through the mix. It is a good idea to practice first on some scrap card.
  • Allow to dry.

STEP 3:

 

  • Once the Embossing Smooth is dry, apply a very light coat of Little Stork, using a dry brush technique. Use kitchen paper to take paint off your brush and use a very light hand.

OPTIONAL STEP:

 

  • If you are applying a stencil, now is the time to do it. 

STEP 4:

 

  • Finish, if desired, with a coat of Furniture Wax – Black
    , apply with a brush or lint free cloth, pushing the wax into all the grooves and ridges you have created. Wipe away any excess.
  • If you added too much wax, you can control it and remove it using our Furniture Wax – Clear
    .

STEP 5:

 

  • You are all done. I told you it was easy!

So give it a go. I am so delighted with my curb side finds. They look as though they came from a high end interiors store with a price to match!
