How to get the "barn" smell out of an old barn door?

I rescued an old door from my parents barn before they tore it down. I want to use it as my headboard but it is stinky. Any ideas how to clean it??

Here are a couple techniques we use:
-wire brush
-pressure wash (be sure to let dry thoroughly before doing any finish)
-and/ or finish. If you don't want to change the look or color as much use a clear matte polyacrylic. See more on finish recommendations at our FAQ page:

Depending on what the smell is from...I used Simple Solution Stain and Odor Remover to get the smell of dog urine out of a subfloor. It really worked.
