DIY Driftwood


Welcome to where we pay homage to the beauty of driftwood – its simplicity yet inexplicable beauty.  What starts out as a simple unassuming piece of washed up wood and, through the many years of nature’s unrelenting assaults and batterings, still manages to emerge as one of its most unique and stunning works of art.

We have to creative blog projects for Christmas – one to create these easy Driftwood Stars from driftwood pieces and crushed candy Creating Holiday Christmas Stars from Driftwood and Candy; and a second to create a beautiful Christmas Bell Jar featuring a Driftwood Christmas Tree and winter wonderland scene Driftwood Christmas Tree Bell Jar Tutorial.

Driftwood Stars


Through the years, I’ve learned different faux painting and simple homemade weathering  techniques that I’ve used to successfully achieve a driftwood finish on furniture, and will share them with you here for those who like to get their hands dirty.  (See Video).  But I’ve also discovered a formula that, when mixed with water, can be easily applied to most unfinished and untreated wood surfaces to achieve a spectacular weathered driftwood finish usually within minutes.  I couldn’t be happier with the results.  

For those who would like a simpler, safer and easier way to achieve an elegant Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish  and to see samples of how it works – click here.  And our new Driftwood Final Finish Liquid Wax is now available.  It’s a great finish if you want to preserve the color of your Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish. We highly recommend it for use with the Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish.
