today’s tutorial will show you a quick & easy way to white-wash a wooden crate or a wood project… learned through trial & error!
i am in LOVE with these paints because you can use them on so many different surfaces and they come in an array of colors with plenty of tones to choose from for any project!
White-washing is an easy 2 step process.
Step 1… paint with a nice thin coat of American multi-surface Birch paint
Step 2… go back over the wood with a sponge brush dipped in water. feel free to use a paper towel to remove as much paint excess depending on whether you want the grain to show through on your project!
i added a beautiful chevron stencil (part of the Americana Angular Motion Stencils) using the Americana Multi-Surface Dolphin paint with a bit of Birch added in.
project #2 comes from a lovely little crate needing a some zest! i chose this beautiful stencil by Americana Multi-Surface Stencils called Retro Mod paired with 2 of my favorite American Multi-Surface paints: coastal waters & deep turquoise
it’s quick to add a little scotch tape to both sides of the stencil and then gently dab the paint over the stencil. within a few minutes of drying, gently remove the stencil from the crate or wooden project to reveal the lovely design…
what are you going to paint?
