Help with reclaimed barn wood
We inherited a large hundred year old tobacco barn. When we took it down we were surprised to find it was doubled walled so that doubled the wood. The only exception, the interior wood does not looked aged like the exterior. My questions for help - please.
My husband would like to use some of the wood to "panel" the living room of what will be our retirement cabin in the mountains. (It really is a cabin in the mountains) Does anyone know how we can do this ourselves? Since family built the barn and took it down; we would like family to put it up again. Silly, I know.
Secondly, please, some other ideas of what we can do with the rest of the wood does not look as aged.
Looking forward to your creative genius Because I am not.
