I think matching the patina on the barrel head would be pretty difficult to achieve an exact on new wood. Does it appear to have an existing finish on it now? Hard to say without looking at it looks like an oil finish(tung, linseed,ect). My suggestion would be to either paint the base black and topcoat to the appropriate sheen or you could try to get a similar color of stain and try to slightly tint your topcoat and spray after staining. Start lighter than you think you need to be and gradually go darker. I would paint it black if it was me, GF has some great milk paints that look amazing.

GoodLuck! Let me know how it turns out!

Have your say...
