I recently had the opportunity to review an amazing product called Driftwood Weathered Wood Finish. Kim at DIY Driftwood emailed me with details about using the product. It comes in a packet as a powder that you mix with water and apply to bare, unfinished or stripped and sanded wood and it will produce a weathered driftwood appearance within 15 minutes. I had the perfect table in which to test this product!
A few years ago, I found this square table with curvy legs at the end of a day at a yard sale. You know how much people want to get rid of stuff by this point, right?! I snatched it up for under $30 and took it home to put on my side porch.
Here is how it looked when I bought it, and it has stayed this way for 2 years…..
It was still weathered, but it sort of lacked definition and didn’t do anything really interesting for the porch. That’s when I thought that the DIY Driftwood Weathered Wood product would be great on this unfinished table!
Here is how it came- in a packet with 2 powders. I used 1 packet on my table, but had extra that I could have used on another small item.
It turns a purple color when mixed with water…..
I used 1 packet on this table- the top, sides, legs, etc. and I had a little extra which I used and continued painting the product on until it was gone.
“It is not a stain, but a product that reacts to the tannins in the wood to produce bluish/gray tones, and therefore reacts a little differently to each wood depending on the amount of tannins in the wood.” – Kim at DIY Driftwood
I have a large clamshell that I got at Ballards outlet a few years ago, and I change it seasonally. Last Summer, I had a Fairy Garden in it, at Christmas I had decorative silver and gold balls, and this Spring/Summer, I decided succulents would look great and be easy!
I think the porch table turned out lovely! I love that the driftwood product gave this little wallflower of a girl a more distinctive look! I plan on painting my brown chairs more of a grayish brown, since we painted our deck this Spring ( oops, just realized I haven’t written that post yet, but I will share that amazing product with you when I do, as well! )

Things are winding down around the Robinson household with the school year coming to an end! My firstborn graduates in exactly 1 week from today! Of course I’m a proud Momma, but it’s also a very bittersweet and emotional time for me. I know good things are in store for him though, and I can’t wait to see all that God will do in him and through his life!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, my sweet friends!! As always, thank you SO much for stopping by!! xo
