COTTAGE COLLECTION FINISHES
Coach Barn offers the unique hand-applied finishes below that are exclusive to our COTTAGE COLLECTION ONLY reflecting a wide variety of paints and natural stains. All of our finishes are done by hand and reflect hours of hand rubbing. Finishes may vary somewhat, wood characteristics may vary considerably. For these reasons we are unable to guarantee an exact match. Each piece is hand finished with great care and thought to achieve its own unique look. We sincerely hope you will appreciate our attention to detail, and enjoy our COTTAGE COLLECTION for many years to come. In order to Enlarge Image, place your mouse on each image and Click It.

Below are pictures from our COTTAGE COLLECTION showing regular wear and regular distress. You can also opt for no wear and no distress, light wear and light distress (half our regular) or heavy wear and heavy distress (double our regular). Unless you specify otherwise, when ordering from our COTTAGE COLLECTION, we will use our regular wear and distress techniques as shown in the pictures below.
Wear is the way the piece is finished on the corners and edges where the application is either worn, peeled or crackled. The pictures above show a Peeled Paint (PP) application which the base is stained then painted over. Top paint is peeled back to reveal base stain undercoat.
Distressing are the little "dings" randomly applied throughout each piece.
See picture at left.
Stained finishes have no wear, only distress.
Most whites and pastels are sanded down to natural wood.
The picture at right shows a Worn Paint (WP) application which is sanded through the painted finish to the natural color of wood.
