Wood Finishing Simplified In a Pickle (Whitewash on Oak or Pine)
This excerpt comes from the book ‘Wood Finishing Simplified.’ Designers always want to talk about the pickled finish. I can’t tell you how many of these finishes I’ve done in my time.

Usually what designers want (and what you can achieve) is done easily with white paint and solvent or, water, if you’re keen on using latex paint.
