Here are some recently power washed planks set out to dry.
Here's a close up of the insect holes-we figure powder post beetles.
This is the painted sample board I did using what can best be referred to as "dry brushing". Basically, get as little paint on the bristles as possible and work from there.
A further away shot. This is sitting on the hearth pad in the living room.
We still have a LOT of power washing to do before we actually get to this stage, but we wanted to see what it would look like on a test board at least.
