How To Do A Driftwood Finish

We finished the table we found when we went pickin' two weeks ago to go with the green chairs. Zeb shows how to glue up a farmhouse table top.

Love your video on making a farmhouse table with a driftwood finish. Stunning, and exactly what I am trying to achieve with my bedroom end tables. After the minwax stain, you used a light grey wash. What do you use for your grey wash? Is it watered down paint? What are the parts and colours? Thank you for such an informative and entertaining video. Lots of great tips. Lisa


What kind of sprayer?


I absolutely love your driftwood table top. I am just not clear on the paint mixture you put on top of the jaco bean stain. Can you tell me what and how much to mix?

Thank you so much!



Really enjoy the videos. I had to chuckle last week when I was at Goodwill and I realized I was picking out things that Jami would choose. I have already painted three of them.


My husband and I love your work. We have a similar table and chairs. The table veneer is a little darker as well as the chairs. We want to leave the veneer on the table top and seats of chairs and paint the table bottom, chairs except seat and hutch entirely (so no stain). What type of paint sprayer do you use? We will be using your exact paint and colors. Any tips would be helpful. Thank you.
