Technical Tuesday Episode #414: Grandeur In Dusty Weathered Finish

January 8th, 2019

We are huge fans of the rustic charm in wine cellars – are you? If you gravitate towards this style, then today’s Tech Tuesday is a must read. We are starting the year off strong and this project will definitely be a contender for our “best of” rankings:

Project # 141338
Wood/Series: Rustic Pine/Dusty Weathered Finish
Bottle Capacity: 1342
Where: n/a

“Luxurious” was one of the first words that came to our mind when we saw these photos. This wine room is the picture of elegance at any angle. The color scheme of the racking assembly is a flawless match with the furniture and vintage decor. The glass panels were a clever touch since they enhanced the bold color choices for this project. Notice that some of the racks are sectioned off by the stone columns. Because these are custom units, they were made to fit perfectly into those spaces.:

Our favorite element in this project is without a doubt the gorgeous hues on the wine racks. It was achieved with the right wood and stain/finish option combination. The wood of choice here is Rustic Pine. This is one of the major reasons why such an authentic rustic flavor was achieved. Even though its popularity has soared, we feel that Rustic Pine deserves even more appreciation. Just take a look at the kind of wine cellar you can create with it! The wood’s most prominent feature is its soft, creamy color. This is combined with subtle streaks and structurally sound knots.

Rustic Pine lends itself to a variety of stains and finishes, making it super easy to match any existing decor. It absorbs all types of stains and finishes really well. The grain patterns become more pronounced in the dark stained woods. Plus, when lacquer is added, the grain pattern continues to get magnified. But take note that the wood is particularly suited for weather finishes. That’s why for this project, a Dusty Weathered Finish option was chosen. This finish will transform your wood with a timeworn look. With our Interactive Wood Swatch Viewer, you will be able to get a preview how specific woods will turn out with this finish. In Rustic Pine’s case,you get grayish-brown hues to complete that coveted weathered appearance.

A closer view of the racking assembly showcases those beautiful grayish-brown hues. See how the client’s collection is wonderfully displayed. Don’t forget that Rustic Pine is our best value by price per bottle space. This is all thanks to the abundant supply of the wood.  It is indeed wine cellar grandeur but at an amazing value! *Cheers*
