Salvaged Douglas fir bleacher seating was re-planed to create warm, textured ceilings, while simple clay paints and finishes enhance the serene quality of each room.

Doug Fir darkens significantly over time - I would say more orange brown than yellow.

Did you use a particular shade of stain or a clear coat on the douglas fir beams and trim?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mitchell Parker added this to Houzz Tour: A Farmhouse Branches Out
The dark wood in the kitchen ceiling was the original framing of the previous kitchen. The island top is salvaged bowling alley wood. “We get it frequently around here,” says Tilt. “You can get a lot for a good price. It’s kind of cool. My house kitchen table is the arrow end.” The countertops are stained concrete. The flooring is salvaged Douglas fir. Countertops: Bohemian Stoneworks
