Whitewash Accents

I love love love the look of a white-washed piece of wood.  Whitewash is actually a very low cost type of paint made from slaked lime (calcium hydroxide) and chalk (whiting), but adds so much character to a home or setting.  The paint technique creates furniture and other wood that looks a little bit vintage, a little bit rustic, and a little bit beach chic.

White-washed wood also makes a gorgeous backdrop for rustic wedding photos.  So why not bring the vintage beach vibe to your wedding photos?  Create your own photo backdrop using a wood door, plank, or piece of fence (rummage through garage sales and junk hauls), and treat the wood using this great DIY on how to whitewash wood.
