    I've never treated barnwood, but we just got a reclaimed barnwood mantel from a guy who makes them and he said he sands them down & puts a few layers of poly on them. It turned out beautiful!

    Tongue and groove oil.. Brianna's poly is a good idea too..poly shines, the oil doesn't!

    First--make sure it is dry and insect free BEFORE bringing it NEAR your house. After that, sand, sand, and sand.
    You will love what comes out.

    I think Renee is asking how to treat the barnwood to make sure it is insect free before moving it into her home. I have no ideas but maybe someone else can tell her how.
