How It Works

You’ve seen the Driftwood Weathered Wood  look in high end stores like Restoration Hardware and now you can do it yourself for a lot less.

Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish is a simple and natural powder mixture which, when added to water and applied to unfinished, untreated wood or bare stripped and sanded wood, will provide a gorgeous, beautiful and long lasting driftwood weathered wood finish. Hard woods such as oak and mahogany will develop a darker bluish-gray color while softer woods such as pine, poplar and birch develop a lighter weathered gray color. Other woods that have been tested include maple, cedar, cherry, walnut and redwood.

NOT recommended for use on particle board, balsa, bamboo or parawood (rubberwood or Malaysian oak).

The solution penetrates deep into the wood so the driftwood finish will last the lifetime of your indoor or outdoor furniture and will not need to be re-applied. It’s very simple and easy to apply and the results are amazingly quick. And, there’s no messy cleanup.

No more experimenting with faux painting techniques to try to achieve a driftwood weathered wood finish.

Top Coating Your Project

While you can use any top coat product you wish over the Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish, keep in mind that most oil based top coating products or ones that contain solvents will usually change the color of the Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish from gray to more brownish and will normally make it darker. This is not necessarily a Driftwood Final Finish Liquid Waxbad thing as certainly weathered wood comes in various shades of brown, but if you prefer to keep the gray tones as much as possible, you need to look for a water based top coat without any solvents in order to preserve the color.

Of the many top coating products we have used, we find our new Driftwood Final Finish Liquid Wax to be one of the best at preserving the color and tone of the Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish and highly recommend it. It can be used as a top coat on furniture, cabinetry, floors and any indoor piece where Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish has been used. It will seal the finish with a layer of carnauba wax leaving a very hard and durable protective satin top coat. Just apply with a sponge brush, soft cloth or paint brush, let it dry and then buff to a final hard finish. Driftwood Final Finish can be used over any of our waxes for an extra durable finish or used alone.

Sample Projects

The pictures below include a mahogany coffee table that was initially stripped of its original stain, painted a distressed white and then stripped and sanded again before applying the Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish. There’s no need to be precise. You will see the solution working on most woods within a 10-15 minutes. The results will darken slowly over the next 24 hours and it will actually quicken and enhance the procedure if applied and left to dry in the sun.

Driftwood Weathered Wood Finish ChairThis dining chair was also previously painted white and was sandblasted to remove the paint but there is still a lot of bits of white paint in the crevices. No idea what type of wood this is but it is very pale, dense and hard without much grain but the carving is exquisite.

Driftwood Weathered Wood Finish ChairI had no idea how the Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish would react to this wooden chair and once I had applied it, as you can see, I became apprehensive as within a few minutes I was getting a lot of different colors and a lot of brown tones. You just have to be patient and give the product time to work its magic. Sometimes you don’t think it’s doing anything at all and sometimes it looks rather scary like above. Be patient.

chair-3After I finished putting the solution over all the bare wood areas, I left it in the Florida sun to dry.

chair-5Here’s the chair after an hour in the sun. It’s exactly the color I was hoping for. This chair took less than 10 minutes to apply the Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish and about 45 min. in direct Florida sun to dry.

Warnings:

Avoid inhalation of the powder, contact with eyes and prolonged contact with skin. In case of accidental contact with eyes, flush with water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Use gloves whenever possible to avoid skin irritation and staining.
