Welcome to DIYDriftwood.com 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 love driftwood and creating beautiful driftwood projects.
Our latest blog is a creative and easy tutorial for Making a Whimsical Driftwood Birdhouse. Pretty easy too.
And check out the pictures from our recent trip to Jekyll Island in Georgia, famous for their Driftwood Beach and rightly so. We found this beach utterly magical and went back three separate times to take pictures under different lighting conditions and tides.
Over the years of testing and trying different techniques with paint, vinegar, baking soda, coffee, etc., we’ve been able to successfully achieve different driftwood finishes. We also pleasantly discovered a formula that can be applied to most unfinished and untreated wood surfaces to easily achieve a spectacular gray toned weathered driftwood finish that usually happens within minutes. We couldn’t be happier with the results. For those who would like a simpler, safer and easier way to achieve an elegant, yet rustic and beautiful Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish – it’s now available. See how easy it is for yourself.
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.
