 Driftwood Weathered Finish

Today I’m sharing a driftwood weathered finish that I used on 2 pallet wood shutters.

I was asked to do a product review for  Driftwood Weathered Wood Finish

and I knew exactly what I was going to try it on!



Driftwood powder

I received  a package and it contained 2 small packages.  Of course I was concerned that it wouldn’t be enough to finish the shutters ๐Ÿ™‚

The directions said to mix one package with one cup of water.  That’s what I did and it was enough to finish both shutters.  Each package when mixed as directed will cover 25-35 square feet. Driftwood weathered wood finish is all natural and should be used on unfinished, untreated wood. It’s takes all the guess work out of creating a driftwood look.  This was one of the fastest projects that I’ve ever done and I still one package left ๐Ÿ˜‰

Driftwood before after As you can see in the before photo the shutters are made from rough pallet wood with an orange tint.  In the after, they are the perfect weathered gray.

Driftwood during

Here’s a shot of the during, the process happens pretty fast!  It darkens even more over the next 24 hours.

The gray tones are perfect, achieved in one afternoon.

I am very pleased with the outcome and I would recommend it.

I received one package of Driftwood Weathered Wood Finish Product to Achieve Natural Driftwood Furniture with Aged Wood Appearance – enough to do 50 square feet.

    1. I just tried a process I found online and it worked and came out beautiful!;

      I used Skater’s Pond quick drying Gladden paint
      Minwax Dark Walnut Stain

      I purchased raw pine 1x6x12 and used a heavy chain and beat it slightly
      I painted the board a thin coat of the Skater’s Pond.Let dry, and sanded lightly.
      I took an old tank top and ripped it up and used one piece to dip in the stain and wiped on and with a nice flat large piece in my left hand, wiped it off. The results were amazing!
