Wood walls, semi-transparent look

bobbie46September 30, 2012

I am trying to paint a wooden wall in my daughter's kitchen. We removed the old paper and cheesecloth and now have nice pine horizontal boards. I thought a whitewashed look woud be nice but don't see much info on how to do that. We could just prime and paint but I think showing some of the grain of the wood would be nice. Suggestions?

Perhaps this will help.

Here is a link that might be useful: whitewash or pickle
