Easy DIY grey wash finish. Get the look of old barn boards or refinish your furniture using this grey wash finish tutorial.
The look of aged barn wood. Grey. Rustic. Perfectly imperfect. Restoration Hardware’s got it. Pottery Barn’s got it. But what if you don’t want to pay the high price tag to get it in your own home? What then? You DIY your own grey wash wood finish, of course!
With a little trial and error I’ve found a great way to get this look on any type of wood – old scrap wood, pallets found at the side of the road and even on brand new wood from the nearest Home Depot!
I used this method to give the pallet wood we used on our DIY Barn Door its gorgeous dark grey wash.
It’s also the finish on our DIY Brickmaker’s Coffee Table.
Here’s how you can get the grey wash wood finish on projects in your own home.
