This project was very unexpected as my wife had purchased the coffee table online and I did not realize it was unfinished and the completed project was supposed to have a somewhat distressed whitewash look. The whitewash coffee table was the desired look to achieve.
light sand all the wood and vacuum and tack cloth off. I used 400 grit sandpaper at this stag as just to open the grain of the wood and allow it to accept the first application of a Sand and Sealer. This Sand and Sealer seals the wood pores to accept the finish product at a more even state and allows a more uniform color.
Mix the whitewash coat: I used a flat white interior latex paint mixed with equal parts water (1/2 cup to 1/2 cup)
STEP 7 & 8:
I hope you found this an interesting project and please contact me with questions or comments.
