Thanks for the compliment -- I am chuckling writing this because this was was actually not done per spec. The wood is resawn Douglas Fir and the finish is a solid color stain by Olympic called "outside white". A tannin stain blocking coat should have been applied first -- this would have prevented the dark bleed through. So -- that is how you can create this look -- don't use a tannin block and at first the wall will appear white but in time, and if memory serves, this did not take more than a few months, the tannins will naturally bleed through . If you are worried it won't happen -- i would try a sample and wait and see.

I like the use of wood siding as a finish material. Better than Sheetrock, but not too "finished" for a garage.
