How do you Whitewash Furniture?

To whitewash furniture, you will need some white paint, a brush, and sandpaper.

Start by sanding the piece of furniture to remove any glossy finishes or coatings.

Then, mix the white paint with water to thin it out and create a washable consistency.

Apply the mixture to the piece of furniture using a brush in long strokes until all surfaces are covered. You can wipe off the excess with a lint free rag.

Let the first layer of paint dry completely before adding additional coats for a more vibrant finish.
