Faux Barnwood Desk

Have you ever wonder how to get the look of faux barn wood?  Well it takes layers and layers and layers of paint, but when it is done it is a fun look.

The fun part is you can use oops paint, spare colors from your house, or craft paint to get this look to work.  I usually start with a gray-blue, the next layer is a cream color.  Then I venture into the browns and grays.  You just keep layering paint colors until you get the look you want.  Sound time consuming?  It is, but the results are well worth it.  What does it look like?

I added a contrasting color and some fun paper for a bit of whimsy.

Have you ever tried faux barn wood?
