How do I paint walls to make them look like old wood?


I want to change the master bath to look like an old out house. Paint the walls to look like old wood.I plan on making the cabinet doors out of palet wood. But instead changing the cabinet frame, I will do either paint it to look like the walls. I plan in finding old looking lighting, or making them. Which I have done in the dining room & kitchen. I turned an old wash bucket into my dining room light. In the kitchen, I took 3 old egg baskets, added light fixtures & painted them to look like old rusted metal. So, making light fixtures is possible for me. I just need to know how to do the walls.

    There is a tool out there that can be used while paint is wet that will give a wooden look.

      I will look again.

      But without the name of the product, it's harder to find.

      I greatly enjoy doing make overs on my own.

      I am happy to buy any tool that I need. Or to learn any technique that will make my project successful.

      Like learning to weld, so I could get my dining room light just right.

      Which might happen to get the overhead light right.

    I hope I didn't offend you with my offer. I didn't mean too. People tell me I sometimes try to be too helpful. Good luck with your project.

    Do the fronts of the rain gutter shelves lean forward with the books in them?
