Painted Barn Siding

Painted barn siding is reclaimed from barns throughout the country, most often in Pennsylvania.  Barns were often painted, and were most often painted red or white.  The look of a faded, chalky, even flaking paint lends itself wonderfully to an antique, yet artistic project.  Painted planks can be re-used as exterior siding or interior paneling or incorporated into projects as featured below.

Painted siding is a great option for either the painted fronts or the brownbacks. Siding is not a uniform material. In a typical “batch” of painted planking, you can expect to find a range of shades.  It comes in random widths and lengths and typically ranges from 5-12″ wide and 4-16′ long. It is normally 3/4-4/4″ thick. Anything less than 3/4″ would be considered what we call “paneling grade.” Down to 1/2″ thick is acceptable for decorative purposes, but we would not recommend using it in a structural manner.
