Whitewashing wood furniture

Whitewashing wood furniture

Whitewashing wood furniture is a finishing technique to create aged appearance on wood furniture surface. The method involves particular process to enhance the wood grains, liming, and protective coating.

An aged wood usually has silver gray thin layer covering the surface caused by the oxidisation and UV light of the sun.

Aging naturally turn the wood into a beautiful silver patina color, but it take years.

For example, a teak folding chair will develop a silver gray color after it left out in sun and rain for more than 5 years.

Our whitewashing method does not speed up the aging process. It is designed to enhance the wood grains and fill the pores with white paint.

Distressing the wood

Distressing the wood aimed to enhance the wood grains and open the wood pores. The wood pattern highlighted by removing softer grains from the surface using a wire cup grinder.

Hand brushing with wire brush to clean the particles left by the wire cup grinder in a same direction to the wood grains. This is to ensure the wood surface look like natural distress.

Further treatment is to hand-sanding the furniture using #180 grit sandpaper to smooth the wood surface.

We use water base white paint to create aged appearance on the wood. Using paintbrush to coat the wood and left it dry for a few hours.
