    Anyone have experience with making your own whitewash formula?
    Info is available but I want to see if anyone has a formula that works well?
    I have some interior white Benjamin Moore and of course
    plenty of Kilz primer to work with.

    Should I just water down the BM? What part 1.water2.paint?
    Makes sense to test it first.....I guess.

    I need to lighten up a few pieces because the laminate floor is now finished!
    And the color is maple. (blonde)

    thanks...

    :rolleyes: Hey Mikey, you might check the Whitehouse website and get the whitewash formula President Bush has been using. On second thought, maybe not, it doesn't really cover that well.:p

    You know what I find fascinating about your post Gary? According to my calculations you could have used the exact energy spent typing as it would require to smoke a cigarette, change your underwear or sweep your porch.
    And the product would have been far superior. imnsho.

    But I'm giving you a B+ grade for finding a way to slip in a little lefty elitist rant which of course feeds into your delusions of magnificence. God...it must be gratifying to be you....
    :D

    Regards,

    Sorta surprising to see 2 left coasters going at it. ;)

    I like it. Makes me feel like the left coast just may have a chance, but then I'm a political junkie anyway.

    I'm a native left coaster-we never go "up there". He's Pacific Northwest. Where the men are men and the sheep are nervous.
