Product Description

Driftwood Natural Weathered Wood Finish

Driftwood Weathered Wood Finish is a simple and natural powder mixture which, when added to water and applied to unfinished and untreated wood or wood furniture, will provide a gorgeous, beautiful and long lasting weathered gray driftwood 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 bluish-gray color. Other woods that have been tested include maple, cedar, cherry, fir, spruce and redwood. NOT recommended for use on particle board, balsa 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.

Driftwood Weathered Wood Finish is available in single size (1 envelope w/2 packets); 2-Pak size (2 envelopes w/4 packets); or 5-Pak size (1 box w/10 packets). Each packet will cover 25-35 sq. feet.

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

Directions for Creating Your Driftwood Finish:

Mix 1 packet with 1 Cup of water. Each packet is enough to cover approximately 25-35 square feet.

TIP: test your wood in an inconspicuous area to see the color which will develop. Some woods such as oak and mahogany develop a darker weathered finish than pines and birch. If you prefer a lighter finish, dilute the solution by adding an additional cup of water at a time – and test until you get the color you want. To reduce blue tones – add just a pinch of baking soda to the solution.

Before applying,  be sure to sand all visible glue and any traces of paint remover. Using a brush or roller, apply the solution to bare, unfinished and untreated wood or furniture that you have stripped and sanded. Driftwood Sample Board

Once you are happy with the color – you can apply a  wax such as Driftwood Natural Beeswax Wood Butter to protect the driftwood finish or if you want a lighter, whiter finish – try Driftwood Liming Wax.  For more subtle gray color, use Driftwood Weathering Wax in Slate Gray.

Cleanup is simple with soap and water. Any leftover solution can be stored for up to 3 months. Leftover powder can be stored indefinitely. You will need to stir the leftover driftwood finish solution in order to re-activate the distressing compounds.Click Image for Larger View

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. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

The pictures below include a mahogany table that was initially stripped of its original stain, painted a distressed white and then stripped and sanded again before applying the Driftwood Weathered 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.

    I ordered this to rehab some old and tired frames and I am just thrilled with the results and the quick shipping! The product is so much easier to use than paint or stain. It isn’t caustic or smelly, and using it outside in the sun is encouraged–which is great since my best work space is outside. Stripping the previous finished surfaces was a bit of a pain, but using the DIY finish was a dream. One of the frames was oak, and as stated on the website the finish comes out much darker and very gray-blue. The other frame was likely maple and it ended up with a more aged gray/brown tone under the exact same conditions. Spectacular weathered results on each one! Couldn’t be happier!
