Distressed Finishes

This technique replicates the look of reclaimed wood that has been restored and re-purposed.

  • Using muliple techniques, our skilled artisans carefully hand-distress every door so each one is unique.
  • Next, a dark burnishing stain is carefully brushed onto corners and select raised areas.
  • Finally, after a stain is applied and hand-rubbed into the wood, a durable matte Suede topcoat is used to complete the distressed look.

Distressing effects - including edge rasping, worm holes, cow tail, edge burnishing, softened corners, and industrial distressing - are inconsistantly hand-applied, replicating the look of distressed wood that has been re-purposed.
