Whitewash is a paint made with chalk that is used to make whitewashed furniture. If you find vintage furniture and paint it with white wash paint, you get an awesome shabby chic piece! Check out the whitewashed furniture below for some inspiration. Whitewashed bedside tables add a charming vintage feel to your bedroom, a whitewashed closet gives your kitchen a cool shabby chic look, etc. You can add a vintage touch to any room by placing the whitewashed pieces there. Such furniture is also great for beach houses I think because it looks so close to the coast, especially if you add driftwood, seashells and stars as decor – you will feel like you are on the beach!
