Weathered Finishes & Lovely Decor Finds

Weathered finishes are lingering in my consciousness (and not just because I happen to currently be under the weather…ha!). Ever since I shared a taste of the sophisticated and thoughtful work of Jeffrey Dungan the other day, I have been pondering the power of a distressed, aged, or weathered finish to impart powerful wow factor, contrast, texture, and design beauty. Today’s Weathered Finishes & Lovely Decor Finds drives the point home.

Whether the weathered finish is organic and purely original or “helped along,” there is something undeniably magical about the history and character a rich one adds to a room’s soul.

Weathered Finishes & Lovely Decor Finds

Ideally, the weathering happens naturally with time, use, and exposure to the elements.

But in many cases, a smart weathered look may be created with imagination, tools, and labor.

Weathered Barn Wood Wall in Our Bedroom

In our own home, I knew the master bedroom in our ’90’s era home could benefit from a grand weathered statement. We installed Stikwood’s Hampton planks on the wall behind the bed, and the neutral room instantly felt more natural and warm. See that DIY RIGHT HERE. These peel and stick planks are real, reclaimed, whitewashed pine boards, and our own installation from floor to ceiling took about three hours.

Weathered Look With Paint

Another way I added a weathered look to our bedroom was by adding a grey glaze to the furniture in the room. I brushed on an airy thin mixture of about one part paint (Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter) to one part water so that the antique candlelight white finish underneath peeks through.

I love the result because not only did I arrive at more satisfying color for the furniture, the soft/simple/lazy paint technique created a subtle striated effect which simulates wood grain or a linen weave, depending upon how you perceive those materials.

Inspiring Naturally Weathered Textures to Consider

Let’s review a few weathered textural inspirations that recently struck my fancy before considering a host of pretty decor and furniture items graced by antiqued, aged, or weathered details.

How To Create a Weathered Oak Finish

I have viewed more than my share of DIY tutorials demonstrating various ways to create a weathered oak finish. Most call for a walnut-toned stain, a grey-stain, and a creamy wax. Depending on the level of rusticity, new wood can be distressed with a wire brush, a power washer, chains, and so on.

Here’s a great example of giving a new piece a weathered finish from Shades of Blue Interiors…and this superwoman, Rachel, built this desk!

Lovely Furniture and Decor With Weathered Details

Sometimes the perfect antique is not available when you need it for a particular space. Or it doesn’t meet your needs for function, scale, or budget. To the rescue? Something weathered yet new.

We all know intentional distressing can go VERY BADLY indeed. Oh my. There are some ghastly DIYS and examples in the marketplace. Here is a slew of friendly-priced furniture and decor suggestive of age. Some pieces are a bit more rustic than others, and you’ll find affiliate links for them all which I hope you’ll use since they don’t add any additional expense while supporting this blog. Thanks so much.

Personal Yada Yada

Thank you for your continued prayers. I sense the cushion of sweet grace from corners near and far and am ever grateful. I am a few days post-op and my wounds are tender. Solid foods are being introduced, and I hope to soon tolerate things I was forced to eliminate before surgery. My weight is good (mama’s tummy is swollen and unlovely). Staying asleep at night is still a challenge, and I look forward to feeling less irritable very soon.

I hope you are all out there saving the world if you have your health and senses intact.

I hope you are WEATHERING every storm rolling in and not feeling too weary.

Wishing you gentle streams of mercy and…

Peace to you right where you are.

    Michele, I love the color of your night tables. Would you do a detailed post on how you obtained the look? I have an oak set in my bedroom. I replaced the bed with an upholstered one in a taupe linen. I’ve been flip flopping between staining my oak dark, or painting it white, or just painting the night tables…. I like the style of the pieces but it needs a softer update.
    Every day should get a bit better. Happy thoughts and well wishes being sent your way. 😀 ~Joanna

      I would love to. It’s a great idea. My mom has been urging to me to do a tutorial for ages since she is also ready to give her bedroom furniture a facelift (and um. it’s the exact same bed and nightstands at her place since she picked mine out!). Thanks for the encouragement. I sort of overdid it with food yesterday and now understand how I need to be disciplined and patient. The cheese is on the horizon but not yet my friend. 🙂 Watch for that post!

    How difficult was the Stikwood installation? I would love it in a bedroom in our house but……kind of scared to try it😳

    Hope you are feeling better!!

      Thank you! It was very easy since we have a power saw and the installation went quickly – 3 hours for the whole wall. I took the paper off the back, and my husband did the cutting and pressing in place. I did a whole post on it if you search DIY Stikwood statement wall. 🙂
