How to White Wash Furniture using Antiquing Powder {Video Tutorial}

Using VS Antiquing Powder to white wash your painted projects isn’t much different than applying any other color of antiquing powder, but it does give a dramatic effect. You can use any of the lighter colors to white wash, but White Cashmere is the most common color.

Both Caramel Latte and French Cobblestone would work to white wash darker colors and give a really interesting effect. I ended up deciding to use White Cashmere to wash the Candlelight Headboard I posted about last week. Since I was going to be doing the work anyways, I decided why not film a video tutorial so I can show you how I created the look.

I wanted this the wash on this project not to be extremely heavy, so I used Mineral Spirits to remove the majority of the product and mostly left it in the cracks and details of the piece.
