Whitewashing wood ceilings,build a wooden boat,plywood panel cutting jig,wood furniture markers - For Outdoors
I had not really noticed whitewashed ceilings and beams before my daughter moved into her new home.
My design plans for the walls will start with the painted wood boards for foyer and kitchen instead of plain painted sheet rock. I have a brick floor to ceiling fireplace I’m thinking of whitewashing or lime washing.
The difference is that whitewashing is using pine wood, where as pickling is the same procedure used but on oak wood.
If you want a thicker white wash effect, instead of diluting the paint to be very light before you paint the cabinets, you should rather paint them with a thicker paint solution and immediately wipe the cabinets over with a clean and soft fabric.This way, a good portion of the paint is wiped, exposing the grains of the wood.
