  • How do you whitewash furniture?

  • The same technique that is used to whitewash furniture can be used to paint floors, walls and ceilings.

  • What is the best way to finish furniture?

  • Finish it with a chalk wax or a clear coat. My personal choice is Minwax Polycrylic water based in Satin top coat. You can use a furniture wax, but I have found that the furniture wax does not hold up as well to continued use with lots of little hands (my kids) touching it.
