Using IOD Barnwood Planks stamp set on furniture (painted with Fusion Mineral Paint!)

Vonda Youngkin barnwood iod plank review stamp

I knew when I first saw the I.O.D Barnwood Planks Decor Stamp (💗set from Iron Orchid Designs that this would be a stamp set that I would get a lot of mileage out of!  First, a bit about the awesome IOD Barnwood Plank Decor Stamps. (A complete list of what I used in this project is at the bottom of the tutorial, all available for purchase here)



The set is slightly more expensive than your single sheet of IOD Decor Stamps, but that's because the IOD Barnwood Planks Decor Stamp is a SET, and comes with 2 (Yes, TWO!) 12"x 12"  sheets.  The first sheet has two 11.5 x 4.75 inch "plank" stamps, and two 4.75 x 1.5 inch "nail" stamps.



The second sheet has another 11.5 x 4.75 inch "plank" stamp, three "distressing" type of stamps of various sizes (11.5ish x 1.25 to 4.75 inches), and two 2 x 1 inch knots.

IOD Barnwood Plank Decor Stamp by Iron Orchid Designs @ The Painted Hierloom

This is my first project using this new stamp set and I found it very easy to use.  All of IOD's Decor Stamps work the same way, so you could pick any of stamp that suits your fancy, and start stamping up house and home!  Remember, before removing from backing, condition your stamps with very fine sandpaper, scuff the surface in two directions. This helps the mediums stay put, and not bead (which some types, like ceramics glazes, tend to do).  Remove stamps from backing when ready to use. This takes some force, but don’t worry, the stamps are strong.

I am terrible at remembering to take before photos of the pieces I work on, I try but when the time comes to start on something I dive in!

I picked this piece up at a thrift store for $30 because it was really ugly, it had peeling and missing veneer, missing inside shelves and the top is a laminate. It was all brown, BUT it was a good sturdy piece with multiple uses and very inexpensive.

There is always a trade off, cheap usually equals more prep. After cleaning...a lot!

I removed all the hardware, patched holes, re-glued veneer and did a light all over scuff sand, then a good wipe down with Fusion's TSP Alternative Furniture Cleaner. Remember the top is laminate so I rolled a coat of  Fusion's Ultra Grip with a microfiber roller to assure my Fusion Mineral Paint would adhere to this glossy surface when I got ready to paint.

The base of the credenza is painted in Fusion's Coal Black inside and out. I painted the top of the credenza with 2 coats of Fusion's Raw Silk.

Then I dry brushed with Fusion's Pebble (Penney & Co. Collection) in lines to give the effect of grain within wood boards.

Be sure to also dry-brush the ends and sides in the same direction.

I decided, for this project, it would be easier to start from the middle and work out to each edge. I found my center mark and made a pencil line down the center to guide my stamping.

In this case, the width of this top was exactly four rows of the Barnwood Planks Stamp. If it had not been I would have adjusted my plan to make it fit by varying the width of the planks. (Try to think of what you would do if you were working with real wood).

I'm a bit O.C.D, (years of being a surgical assistant will do this to a person) so I felt more comfortable using the Large Acrylic Stamping Block for the larger stamps, but it isn't necessary. You can use our Thin Mount Acetate Sheets, or  can freestyle and use no mount and all!

I used the I.O.D. Decor Ink in Black for this project because I feel it gives a bit more crisp and finer look than paint. You can certainly try paint to achieve similar results - just practice on a cardboard box or a brown paper bag first.  I actually have a class coming up where we will use Fusion Mineral Paint for all the stamping on each of the 3 projects.  I also prefer the I.O.D. Art Brayer to apply the paint to the stamp but you certainly could use the foam roller as well.

Again, be sure to use the stamp on the ends and edges of your table top. I created my planks first and then went back and added the "nail head stamps" in areas to create a balanced look. I used the "knot hole Stamps" in areas that were not completely flat and failed to get a good stamp impression due to the unevenness of the table top (I hope that makes sense to you). Strategically placed knot holes!

After my stamping was complete, I let it dry for a good 24 hours, and then lightly sanded the stamped surface with 220 grit sanding block.

Finally, I put 2 coats of Fusion's Tough Coat on the top to protect it and Fusion's Black Furniture Wax on the base. I replaced the hardware with gold nugget pulls to match the feet.

I placed new adjustable hardware inside for shelves and finished the shelves to match. I love how this came together!

I placed this piece in my gallery at Alyssa's in Pace, and every time I am in the booth working, people have to come in to actually touch it to see if it's real. They cannot believe it was done with a stamp when I show them! 

All of these products are available for purchase at our website,, as well as our galleries in Alyssa's Antique Depot in Pace, FL and Miles Antique Mall in Pensacola, FL.
