Finished a bedroom for client. Used barn and corral boards from clients acreage. Boards are rough cut pine, weathered and have lots of character. Sorted through to find right board for each piece. Not many nails either (which is nice) The Headboard , nightstands and barn door on closet are all finished with a steel wool, vinegar solution. Then several coats of MINWAX polycrylic satin finish. The barn door has rollers from an old building we found on farm, had to loosen up roller, built a brand new track. Had to spot weld the hinged part of rollers. p. I just built them, the client did the finishing.
Very happy how these turned out.
Client was thrilled.
And I got paid for something I love doing.
