Could someone please help me identify this?

Firstly, I freely admit that I know nothing in this kind of area but I came across
this image and would really appreciate any help on identifying the wood or any
effect to achieve it.

I genuinely apologize, I just can't find what I'm looking for anywhere without
knowing what I'm looking for.

that is a nice looking setup.
try googling: bleached barn wood and reclaimed barn wood,
you can achieve the same look with the cheap white pine boards from
your Box Store with wire brushes and an assortment of "distressing" tools.
then, apply your choice of whitewash finish and you will be golden.
the top metal pieces are just plain tin metal cut to size and tacked in place.
the thin metal sheets are also available at your local Box Store (in the Hardware section).

** if you get lucky and find some reclaimed wood locally that fits your needs,
there are SEVERAL steps you must take to ensure it is safe for you to
make anything that will be in your home - and be touched by people and pets.
investigate its source and history before purchasing it.

I agree with John. Old barn pine boards, or just new pine boards that were bleached and distressed heavily, then finished with a white wash of some kind. With some experimenting, you should be able to come close. The metal ends could be made from galvanized duct material.

Building site scaffold boards (the iron end bands give it away) Heavily bleached and distressed.

I know its a modern trend, but would never get inside my front door.

My guess is that they are reject scaffold planks judging by the visible cracks.

We have been looking at motor homes after we sell the farm we are going to get one, we where looking at a Newmar that had a MSRP of $1,200,000, the cabinets were cherry and they had open knot holes and visible cracks in the doors, the sales man said it is the new trend, "rustic" I asked him is the rest of the coach built as sloppily because it is a new trend?


He didn't like my question LOL


We would never pay that much for a new coach, but they will relaly come off the MSRP big time, but besides the wood work it was a nice ride

I used to service and repair RVs. A lot of really shoddy work done on them, where it doesn't show, much. Lots of leaks. The ones that came out of the Elkhart area seemed to be worse than most. Crawl under it before you buy!

When you buy an RV today, it doesnt matter whether you spend $40K or $400K, it is essentially a rolling PIS. The manufacturers dont really stand by it and you have to wrestle over getting RV work done. When we bought ours new, we took it home and found some problems. I called the dealership. And they told me to bring it right in Then I asked how long will it take and he said 6 to 8 weeks, yES - WEEKS. I told him that I just bought it yesterday. The Corporate office was not any more sympathetic. KEYSTONE is the manufacturer. I went down in person and not actually yelling, just talking loudly so customers could hear me. They wouldnt set a date to bring it in and have the work done immediately there after. NOOOOOOOOOOOO, I had to bring it in and wait the 6 to 8 weeks after I brought it in. I then raised my voice louder and announcede to the crowd "Did you hear that - This man is so stupid and incapable of marking up a calendar and scheduling a drop off and pick up date. I bougth the thing yesterday and now he is telling me to bring it in and wait 6 to 8 weeks This guy is the supervisor of maintenance and can't read a calendar".Then they asked me to leave and i told them That I was just going to sit and wait for them to call the police while I call the local news paper. Finally they received a phone call and asked me to get on the line. It was the owner. He told me to bring in the RV tomorrow and they would fix some of the items and the less important items could wait and bring it back in 6 weeks and they will work on it immediately. I agreed and when everyone was looking at me as I was walking out, I took a big bow in front of my audience.
They eventually honered that part but it still was a wrestling match ever since.
Anyway, back to woodworking - the woodwork is low grade and poorly put together.

Looks to me like the resurgence of the "antiquing" fad of the 1960s is rearing its ugly head.
Its a piece of marketing (being polite) used to separate hipsters from their money.
This rustic fashion fad is likely to be with us for a while. Marketers need to saturate the customer base as much as possible so the buying public will get sick of it and move on to the next fad.
Hopefully crate furniture won't come back.
