ONE-TIME EXTERIOR WOOD FINISH: An Easy Way to Get Even Weathered Look

Almost 20 years ago a friend of mine told me about a kind of outdoor wood finish you only ever had to apply once. I’d never  heard of it before and it sounded too good to be true, so I figured I should learn more. The product came as a powder that you mixed with water, then sprayed onto bare wood to make it darker, more beautiful and longer lasting. This stuff was supposed to be completely non-toxic, too.

Long story short, I tried the product on my own projects and I find it works really well. The version I use today is called Ecowood Treatment and you can see it in action on a project I worked on back in 2009. It’s on the system at Home Hardware, Home Depot and Rona, despite what some store clerks might think. Click below to watch one application job where I used the product.
