I have used it in both cabinets and ceilings. Ceiling are easier as the "holes" present challenges in cabinet making. Google or search Houzz for images of ceiling in Palm Beach, Florida and the Caribbean and you can see typical ceilings done this way.
Have a painter check to see what the sealant was used on your original pecky. You may be able to paint with a semi-transparent glaze (made by Ben Moore for outdoors in several shades) or take lime powder and mix with water to get a pancake batter-like consistency and put directly on top of the existing wood. If not, sand well.
If you used lime you will need to apply a flat polyurethane coating to keep the lime from flecking out of the holes.

it's a custom paint wash and glaze applied to the bare pecky cypress by a decorative painter.

Anyone know how pecky cypress compares in price to mahogany, oak or other woods? Krantz?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to How to Get Your Stair Runners Right
7. How do I handle stairs that change width? You can continue your stair runner at a uniform width, allowing more and more wood to show, as in this photo.
How much distressing? These painted walls appear to have been scraped to resemble peeling paint. It is very dramatic in this minimally furnished room and looks like walls I imagine you might find in an old home in Europe.
