Default Barnwood Builders on DIY TV

I found this cable show pretty interesting. They have a lot of good techniques and ideas. You can watch it on-line.

I have seen some shows where they moved, rebuilt, restored, or combinations of all three to old barns.. Rebuilding them into all kinds of homes and other use structures..

Old barn wood salvaging used to be a big thing around here.. Lots of older structures not usable anymore.. But that must be out of style now..

My dad had a process where he would take pine boards, and use a powered wire brush, light grey paint and other chemicals to give a "weathered" look.. It was obviously not an original finish, but looked nice all the same.. He made many picture frames, shelves, small furniture accessories, you name it..

Be sure to post any projects you do..

Always fresh.
