There are many ways to whitewash chock painted furniture but this is the best technique to get a natural looking whitewashed finish.
WHITEWASHED CHOCK PAINTED FURNITURE MAKEOVER
This is the buffet, or sideboard, I never know what to call them that I bought at auction for $40. Yes it was a deal. I think I know what scared off most bidders.
The top. I’m not sure what all happened to it but there were leftovers of felt stuck to the surface, or I believe it’s felt. Then there were small piece of thick tape in spots.
You can see the gummy looking dark spot in the photo above. I finally gave up because the more I sanded the worse some of the areas got.
Next I removed the drawer pulls. They were all there and all intact for a change. These drawer pulls had a tiny nail at the bottom of each plate to keep it in place. Nice to have but extra work.
I needed the paint scraper to slip under the drawer pull to get the nail to work loose. I always put all of the drawer pull pieces including screws in a plastic bag. I learned that tip the hard way.
