DIY Whitewash Kitchen Table

Whitewash kitchen table – So long story short, when we moved into our little beach house a couple years ago, we slowly have been making it “us” versus a vacation rental, but as a family of five in such a small space, the decorating and function has been quite the challenge. I really miss my oversized solid wood farmhouse table!  I’ve really missed not having really any definitive dining space at all. The process isn’t too crazy difficult, and I just worked right in our home where the table was going to be. Here’s the step-by-step run down. Most products can be found at your local hardware store. I placed a dropcoth under my table to protect my rug and floor.
I applied Citristrip (a product stripper) on the table top and base (with basic, cheap chip brushes). I used a scraper to remove the stripper and gunk from the table top. This gives you clean, raw wood to work with. I had to do two rounds of stripper to get the whitewash kitchen table prepped, and then afterwards cleaned it with Odorless Mineral Spirits.  Now for the fun part!  For this makeover, I used Vintage Market Furniture Paint in Dove White and mixed up a simple “wash” with roughly equal parts paint and water.  There is NO set formula for this!  The more water you add, the more diluted and lighter or washed out/opaque the color will be.
Apply the wash in sections of the table. Wipe away immediately or let it sit for a minute or two and then wipe away. I used staining pads for this and they work beautifully! When you are wiping the color away, I suggest finishing out by wiping in one direction. On a whitewash kitchen table like this, I finished removing excess paint in the direction of the grain. Move to the table apron, then the base in sections. Let paint wash fully cure. Seal using staining pad. I suggest applying 1-3 coats in a similar manner as the painting process. Apply, let sit, then wipe and buff out. Let the table dry/cure for a few days before full use.
