I think I'm ready for a break with grey weathered barn wood ... and then I use it again and BAM! Just like that I'm in love with the look all over again. The simplicity and weathering of the boards just gets me; oh what that board has seen! You can't get too frivolous on 100 year old boards which, when you're talking about trying to reach the honesty of lettering, is a good thing!
Doing this custom piece was a joy!
