Well, I finally got my painting done in my family room and when I got it all done, I decided that the barnwood is just too dark in that room. I was going to buy Minwax Whitewash Pickling Stain, but it was late at night and I'm an impulsive person, so I just mixed white paint and water.
It's far from done, but I think it will make this room look lighter and brighter. Very cottage like! Of course now I'm going to need new window treatments!
