Whitewashed Bed

I lovely bed but after changing out my comforter and painting the walls, its just too dark. I want to keep the wood look but need to lighten it up so I chose to whitewash it.

This process is so easy and fast! I use a mixture of white paint and water. I brushed my mixture on in sections and then went back over it with a cloth to wipe off the excess paint.

Don’t be scared! Yes, I know that the first step looks a little scary but the end result is beautiful! Trust me. Once I have the headboard done, I know I love it! You can do this as much as needed to get the end result you want. I touched up a few areas here and there but I only needed to go over the bed one time.

This seriously only took an hour at the most and made such a huge difference. I’m loving my new bed color with the darker walls. It only took Mr. Modish the whole day to realize I had painted the bed (he likes it too).
