Happy Monday! I know I would usually be doing a model home tour today, but I'm going to put that on hiatus until the New Year. I have lots to share with you until then! :) As promised last week, here's the how-to on getting new wood looking old in minutes. And...no sanding required like my last technique. This gives it a much softer look.
This is going to be a super short picture post because this technique is that easy. :)
First step is to take your wood and 'white wash' it with some white paint and water. I did about a quarter cup of water to a tablespoon of paint. Of course, I made more than that. So, 1 cup of water to 4 tablespoons of paint, etc. I put one coat on, and then waited for it to be semi-dry and did another coat. I then waited about 15 minutes for the whole thing to dry. Drying time might depend on the type of wood you are working with, fyi :)
