Plaid Barnwood paint with stencils

 Good morning :) I've been trying out the new Barnwood Paint which I received from Plaid last week and I'm really impressed! It's got such a beautiful finish.

  I painted the dark Barnwood Tint on to an unfinished wooden heart...

...and then gave it a coat of the light coloured wax. Once this was buffed off with a kitchen towel the beautiful barnwood finish appeared :) The next stage is to scrape the excess wax off with a piece of plastic/wood in the direction of the grain to achieve the grainy barnwood effect.

 I used Glacier and Sheepskin Chalk Paint from Plaid to stencil the chicken wire and hen onto the heart.

These are the products which I used.


  1. Wow this is beautiful dearie. Great step by steps too. Stunning piece.hugs x

  2. Gorgeous project, love the barbed wire stencil. Any idea when and where it will be available Ruth?


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment, it's lovely to hear from you. Ruth
