I want to whitewash the trim in my bathroom. All of it is new and unfinished at this point. Please tell me how to whitewash it so that it has a sort of country look.
Thank you.

Ldoering1, You can make a simple wash by mixing a flat latex that is the correct color in water. For example, if you want the classic white pickle use white or very pale cream paint and add to water until it stains to suit you. Do this mixing and matching on scrap wood. Start with very small amounts of water adding even smaller amounts of paint. After staining seal with sand sealer(oil) or clear poly(waterbased), putty, sand lightly with 220 grit and one more clear finish coat will finish the trim....Mike
