Shabby Chic Floor


 Share

Recommended Posts

What a great idea, painted on rug, but I think for this, I want plain flooring because the wallpaper is very busy.

Just got the wide craft sticks at Michael's today. How do you do the whitewash technique? Do you have to underpaint with a darker color or something so the whitewash will show?

I white washed some popsicle sticks for the wainscotting in my willow. I just watered down white paint and painted the mixture on. You can still see the grain through - it is a bit like staining it white instead of staining it dark. Can take a closer picture if you want.

I painted two of my floors with white and then scored them- wide plank. The natural color of the wood showed through doing it this way. Then I poly'ed them twice which gave an older (just a bit yellowed) look. I think it looks kinda shabby chic. The first photo that comes up in my gallery is one.
