Shabby chic decor is very popular today because old days have their own charm. There are many ways in which various surfaces can be given age and shabby appearance: aging, weathering, whitewash, patina and rusty surfaces. Whitewashing means covering surfaces with white paint or chalk paint, which gives it a desperate and somewhat shabby look. Whitewashing isn't difficult at all, and you can get the look easily.
You can torture wood, clay, terracotta, and many other materials; You can give your floors, walls, or even a fireplace a whitewashed look for a shabby chic charm. Today we're going to see how to torture and whitewash various pots and planters to give your outdoor and indoor spaces a cool, rusty look. The easiest way is to use white acrylic paint and a brush. Mix about one part of paint with two parts of water in a cup. Brush over pot, if you think there is too much paint on the brush, just wipe it with a paper towel. Let dry for 1 hour. If you want a desperate look, after the paint has dried, use sandpaper and sand off some of the paint. Sand down more to make the pot even more desperate. After sanding, wipe the pot with a damp rag and then spray two coats of acrylic sealer on the pot, preferably a matte one. If it's a wooden planter it can be a little trickier: you can see lots of tiny bubbles as you brush the mixture onto the surface. Immediately after spreading, wipe the watery mixture with a paper towel before it can completely penetrate the wood. Keep doing this until you are happy with the way it looks.
