Greatroom

This wood ceiling needed something to tone down the grain in the planks. We were able to create a wash that did exactly that.

The floors (reclaimed red oak from a pre-Civil War barn) needed to have their different colors highlighted, not homogenized. Instead of staining the floor, we used a tung oil and beeswax finish that was hand buffed.

Our clients wanted to have reclaimed wood beams in their ceiling, but could not use true old beams as they would not be sturdy enough to support the roof. We took their fresh- cut fir beams and used synthetic plasters, paints, and glazes to give them an authentic aged look.

The ceiling color is a stain we made from scratch in an effort to replicate some of the tones from the fireplace stone.

Thanks for asking about the floor Britteny. It's very unusual. The wood is reclaimed long leaf pine (taken from a body of water). All of the time in the water made for some very distinctive coloration on some of the boards.

The staining process is also unusual. It's called "Fuming". We put out pans of Ammonium Hydroxide -very nasty stuff. When that evaporates into the air it interacts with naturally-occurring tannic acid in the wood. The result of their interaction is tannin staining on the surface of each board. Because the amount of tannic acid varies from one place to another, so does the amount of coloration.

Finally, we applied a mixture of beeswax and Tung oil. That was buffed to a mellow sheen.

The wall paint is a Sherwin Williams product. "Macadamia" 6142. In some places we used "Softer Tan" 6141
