Amazing what a wash of paint can do! It is my favorite trick to add a soft finish to enhance a piece and not cover it. It requires the right wood tone and the right finish. The wood tone should be one that you want to peek through and the finish needs to be already stripped. The wash won’t work on a piece with shellac on it or another glossy sealer.
My farmhouse cabinet was perfect for a wash of Annie Sloan Old White.
Here is a two part “How To” video series on the Farmhouse Cabinet and the whitewash. Enjoy!
One of my all-time pieces you’ve done :). Simply gorgeous and your video is how I learned to do my own whitewashing!!
This is stunning!

so pretty, great tutorial, thanks Suzanne
I love the look of white washing and can’t tell you how much I appreciate the video’s – seeing it done makes it so do-able – thanks!
So glad to be of help!
Enjoyed the video. My question is….did you apply any wax afterwards?
Hi Wanda, Yes, I applied a coat of AS clear wax and buffed it after applying the wash. Thanks!
