UFP-Edge Red Rustic Trim Boards look like authentic reclaimed barn wood, and they're better (no worries about bugs or mold). New, high-grade lumber is surface distressed, primed, and painted to look as if it came from an abandoned New England barn.
Friends, take note: These boards are rough, with a ridged texture. A splinter might come off if you rub them really hard. Wonderful if you want the texture, not so much if you want a smooth surface. We'll all be sad if you buy these and then lose a weekend sanding them down.
DON'T USE THESE OUTSIDE: Nope, just don't. If you take your chances anyway, you must use a wood protector sealant. Really.
READ THIS ABOUT COLOR: Boards are designed to look like they were raised on a barn. Color will be lighter or darker in areas, because of distressing and wood's natural characteristics. Wood grain and knots might show. If color consistency is important to your project, we recommend buying at least 10% more boards than you think you need. Embrace imperfection.
Installation notes: In bathrooms: Seal boards with waterproof sealer. Shelving: Use with proper support.
