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

Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish is a simple powder mixture and, when added to water and applied to unfinished and untreated wood or wood furniture, will result in a gorgeous, beautiful and long lasting weathered gray driftwood finish.

What Color Will I Get?

Hard woods such as oak and mahogany normally have more tannins and will develop a darker bluish-gray color and 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, rubberwood, parawood or Malaysian oak because of the lack of tannins in the wood.

Because the solution penetrates deep into the wood, 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 to apply and the results are amazingly quick and easy with no messy cleanup or unpleasant odor.

Wood treated with Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish is an all natural product safe for humans, animals and the environment.

How to Use Driftwood Weathering Wood Finish:

Mix 1 packet with 1 Cup of water. Each packet is enough to cover approximately 25-35 square feet – more if you wish to dilute the solution.

(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 until you get the tone you want.)

The Product MUST BE USED on Bare Wood. 

Strip and sand if necessary to remove ALL traces of other chemical residue.  Sand all visible glue.  Using a brush or roller, apply the solution.  You do not need to be neat – you just need to get your project wet with the Driftwood solution.

The Driftwood Weathering Wood solution will begin to work on most woods within a 10-15 minutes and the results will usually darken slowly over the next 24 hours. The first few minutes after application can be rather intimidating as you will either see lots of different colors developing or it will look like nothing is happening at all – be patient.  It will actually quicken and enhance the procedure if applied and left to dry in the sun.  We recommend waiting 24 hours to see the actual final result.

Easy CleanUp

Cleanup is simple with soap and water. Any leftover solution can be stored for up to 3 months in a non-metallic container. Leftover powder can be stored indefinitely.


Driftwood Weathering 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. Quantity discounts and Gallon size packaging available upon request.
