Saltwash is here. (Whoop. Whoop!)
What is Saltwash?
(Oh, you guys. It. Is. AWESOME!)
Saltwash is a safe and easy-to-use product to create beautiful texture on your painted furniture pieces. It is a powder additive made from real sea salt. You mix it into your base coat of paint to create a layered and textured effect like your piece has been happily sitting outside by the seashore for many summers. Saltwash can be used with any type or any brand of paint.
We used Saltwash to create the texture on these recent projects.
Saltwash can be used to create different effects on painted furniture. Use a little for a subtle, almost crackled vintage look … or use a lot for a dramatic timeworn effect. Of course, it is the perfect product to create that coastal look that is so popular right now.
Here it is with black and white for a more shabby chic look:And here it is with red and turquoise. See the entire transformation of this vintage dresser here.
Saltwash is also an easy option for camouflaging damage like scratches or missing veneer. Click here to see the awful “before” shot of this little cabinet.
However you use Saltwash, one thing is for sure. … Your project will be beautiful!
