One way of creating white wash on wood

Hello to all you DIY addicts 


This is my first time posting in discussion so bare with me, but happy to be apart of a page that respects every ones DIY ideas and creations.


thought I'd share one way of creating a white wash beach look on wood/Pallet wood. I did water down some white paint that I had for the house, and used a scraper to spread the paint until I get this look, 


What are some other ways? Of interpreting other colours like blue and black for giving a washed look White Wash

Re: One way of creating white wash on wood

Thanks for posting @LePallet.


For people who aren't very bright like me, could you please explain a little further about the process is that you used? 


Was it just watering down paint then using a scraper to apply. That's it? How much water did you add? And what type of paint? And just one coat? 


Thanks again.
