How to Create a Whitewash Finish

When I shared my Whitewashed Coastal Inspired Dresser I promised a tutorial on how I achieved the look. I fantasized about making this great video tutorial including tons of detail with pretty lighting and pictures. In reality, that didn’t happen and I settled on a post with only pictures. Hopefully, it will give you the overall idea of creating this whitewash finish. Remember to play around with your technique and use my tutorial as a guide to help you get started. I promise this is so easy and anyone can get this look!
