If you want to make wood look like barn wood, you have to mark it with dents, scratches, holes, or other marks. This makes it look like it has really been sitting out in the weather for many years. You can drill small 'nail holes' in it with a small drill bit, hit it with a chain, and lay metal objects on their sides on the wood and hit the items with a hammer to leave marks.
