how to white wash furniture + a simple table makeover

how to white wash furniture + a simple (and easy!) table makeover that you will love! // A Dash of Mum blog

White washing furniture is one my favourite painting techniques.  It’s so easy to do and the effect is so pretty and dreamy.

All you need is some white paint, a paintbrush and a little water.  I put a small dollop of a paint in a bowl (I used Powder White by Behr Marquee), followed by a little water.  The consistency needs to be runny and the paint opaque.

I painted the legs on a little table I had in L’s room.  I love this little table, and really enjoy the raw wood legs, however, they have a bit of an orange hue to them and I wanted to tamp that down a bit.  So I flipped the table upside down and lightly brushed on the watered down paint.  A little goes a long way and this is a foolproof way to paint.  You literally can’t mess this up!

I love how this turned out!

What do you guys think? Is this the easiest way to paint ever? * the answer is yes 😉 *
