Pretty Easy Driftwood Paint Finish for Outdoor Furniture


Layers of Paint

Base Color
Custom Color Wash
Dry Brushed Antiquing Glaze

Each layer only took about 30 minutes, so not a lot of time to devote to get the driftwood gray finish! Just the dry time will slow down the process.

If you like the upholstered seat, it was an easy DIY upgrade.

How-To Create the Outdoor Driftwood Gray Finish
Make sure you pick a time where it won’t rain for a couple of days. There are overnight dry times in between coats and you don’t want the rain to ruin your hard work!
