I was commissioned to do two boards for a couple who saw my work somewhere (?)
lol. They wanted it done big and using reclaimed wood. They found a place selling the reclaimed wood so I went there and found a barn wood bonanza!! 150+ year old wood.
Forgot to get a pic before I cut them all and pieced the board together.
But here is a shot of the wood in raw, albeit cleaned and sanded:
They wanted these specific colors. I used milk paint on one because they have the most awesome shade of turquoise! I've used it on a lot of pieces and people just love it. The second color was a custom mixture of chalk paint.
