Surface Innovation - flexible veneers
Several Years ago I met Mike Stiller, owner of Surface Innovation at IDS and was amazed at his product line of flexible slate and other stone products. Over the years the line has expanded and when he introduced barn board last year I thought that was great. Now, he has gone a step further and the latest is also made of reclaimed wood - Barn board PS which is a thin weathered wood veneer with a self adhesive backing. How easy can it get for the average DIYer.
So with the self adhesive barn board planks you just measure, cut and stick. I think anyone could do that and get the lovely rustic and warm appearance of barn board without the weight and thickness. A very cost effective way to transform your space adding texture, warmth and the rustic look which is so on trend these days.
Plank sizes - 1/8" X 5" in random lengths from 1' to 4', with the option of 20 or 40 sq. ft. per box.
There is also barn wood which are a textured wood mosaic tiles made from reclaimed barn board and ship wood tiles, made from reclaimed sunken wooden boats. How eco is that!
