Hey guys it’s been a while.
If there is one thing that gives me more problems than anything in this business, it’s finishes.
Today I delivered a providence bench that I grayed out by using green tea and vinegar with steel wool. I asked her if she wanted it top coated, told her it would yellow the pine a little and she said yes. I get an email from her and she’s all depressed that it won’t match her other furniture.
I tell you, this barnwood craze has just as many problems as fine walnut and cherry. You’d think anyone who likes distressed wood would like pretty much anything that looks like it came from some old forgotten barn, but they even get picky about that.
So you guys have any finishing nightmares?
