White-Washing Tutorial on a FLAT surface now on YouTube

Hey!

Some of you mentioned that you could not see the video I posted last week of my personal update. Others were able to see it. I post all these on YouTube so you can just go to my channel or plug in Blue Egg Brown Nest on YouTube to see!

My White-Washing Tutorial is now up and what makes it a big different than my Weathered Wood Tutorial is that I did this technique on a flat, wood surface and it does work if you play with the paint. Originally, I thought you could only do the white-washed look w/ a textured wood like oak so that the paint would seep into the crevices and sit on the higher parts. I wanted to try the look on a smooth surface as I’ve shown here.

PS, the video is not edited and I showed most of my process so it’s a bit long FYI.

Here are some stills of the same transformation…

 

 

A Quickie Sideboard Transformation (because I didn’t take many pix!)

So, yes, that was my update yesterday that you may have seen about moving in the direction that I feel and honoring that. However, I did a few projects over the weekend that I wanted to share. If you are not following me on Instagram, hop on as I tend to share there first. Look up “blueeggbrownnest”.

Here’s a before and after of my sideboard….

I used Old White, Clear Wax and NO distressing.

The room is so much lighter! Happy.

Hi Y’all!

Ohhhhhhhhhh, Dear Friends! It’s been forever and I miss our connection! Here’s a lil or long video update on me. I’ve been thinking of you all for some time and where I fit in with the entire modern farmhouse craze we have going on. I am never one to love the mainstream. I want to be off-stream; alternative stream. Always have. I get inspired by looking at things in a new light and then sharing what I’ve learned. In the meantime, I am praying, meditating, therapy-ing, friending, parenting, truth-telling and listening to a ton of podcasts to fill my soul and add perspective and a sense of openness to my world.

Love to you all! PS – I will be posting a new video of my round table that I white-washed this weekend. I still love a good transformation!
