The whitewash finishing method involves particular process to enhance the wood grains, liming, and protective coating. The wood grains pattern highlighted by removing softer grains from the wood using wire brush or wire cup grinder. Then we handsand the tc stand using #220 grit sandpaper, and clean the wood pores from the dust and particles using smoot brushes.
The liming process using smooth cloth to apply lime wax onto the wood surface, hand rubbing in circular direction, overlapping strokes to ensure the lime entering the open pores. After cleaning wax excess using ultra-fine steel-wool, limed wood surface sealed with neutral wax.
The last process of whitewashing technique is to apply furniture finishing protective coating.
