I bought these to make a faux beam in our house. After sifting through 10+ boxes in the store to find the straightest beams, I got home, unwrapped them, and the glue from the package stuck to the beam. Getting the glue off altered the charred look. I ended up sanding some of the stain off, and restaining the board. After doing this, they really pop. The factory stain did penetrate really deep, which was great. If you buy these, and are willing to put in a little work, they look great, but don't buy them thinking you can just slap them up as-is.

Purchased 2 packages (4 boards) to use as a rough frame around a chalkboard painted wall area. All 4 pieces were warped to the point of being almost unusable. With one pushed flat on the ground, at the full extent (i.e. 8' to the opposite end) a corner measured 2-3" off the ground. Absolutely not what I expected and had it not come in a wrapped package I would've seen it at the store and not purchased it.

These UFP-Edge 1 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. Smoke White Charred Wood Pine Trim Boards looked like they would complement the 1 x 6 Coastal Teal project boards we plan to use to make a headboard for our king-sized bed. We have a large master bedroom, but we have never had a good headboard for the bed and we could always use more storage spaces in the bedroom. We want to use these smoke white charred wood 1 x 4's as trim and for side doors on the storage areas behind the headboard.
We received six cartons each containing two 8-foot 1 x 4 white trim boards. The boards are 3-1/2 inches wide. so 12 boards would cover an area 42 inches wide by 8 feet high. If we only use them for the doors on the sides of the headboard storage niche, we could make the niche about 20 inches deep from the wall to the back of the headboard. Alternatively, we could use these to build a pair of more conventional integrated night stands on both sides of the headboard.
The boards are nicely finished in off-white stain on three sides, the backs of the boards are unfinished bare wood with some of the stain spilling over in places. The boards are pretty clean and straight with only some slight twisting and warping. The ends of the trim boards are generally pretty good but can get banged up a little in shipping. If you're going to cut them down like I plan to, that shouldn't matter too much. I plan to seal and finish the boards with Varithane Crystal Clear Gloss Water-Based Interior Polyurethane. When it's finished, I will try to post some photos of how it turned out.

After reading prior reviews I was very hesitant to consider these boards for an accent wall but the quality of the boards I purchased were very good. All the boards I purchased were very good quality, no warping or splitting. Before putting them up I got some medium grey oops paint from the depo and painted the wall before putting up the boards just in case the boards shrink a little after putting them up. I put 1 nail about every 2 feet along the length of the boards and they seem to be holding well. Overall I am very satisfied with these boards.

Disappointed in this product. We ordered one 2-pack and the two boards were not identical. The charred design was very different, but we could live with that. The biggest problem was that they are not identical in thickness... So we cut our pieces down, rented a saw to do this, and then once we were about to place everything up to make a mirror frame our pieces did not sit flush up against the wall because they are not the same. I am very disappointed that we went through lots of time to assemble and stain these pieces for it to now not work out. All because the 2 boards are slightly different in thickness. Need better quality control.

Inconsistent color with lots of gouges and other imperfections that would not lead to the consistent look I was after with no ability to touch anything up. It was also much too yellow vs golden which is on me for ordering online vs. coming to the store to look at an actual sample prior to ordering.
