DIY white wash recipe ~ painted walls can be white washed to give the room a vintage shabby chic, cottage vibe. A white wash can aslo be used to tone down walls painted in colors that are too vivid or intense - this way the original color still shows through but appears more muted, soft and warm. You can also use it on painted furniture and plain, unpainted wood.
