Hello, I am hoping there is someone out there that has previously whitewashed wood and woven cane. I have a blanket box I would like whitewashed that doesn't go with my decor but I love the box and don't want to get rid of it. First time user so this is all new to me. If you have anything similar that you have done are you able to share?

Hi Arieta, does the wicker have varnish on it?

Hi Madeline, doesn't appear to have varnish on the wicker.
So it's probably just a stain. You could leave it as is and use a 'dry brush', it'll be similar to a white wash. The colour will obviously still show through somewhat. Otherwise you could strip the wicker, but that is a massive pain!! The box itself would be easy to do. You could sand it back or use a chalk paint over the top with no prep. I feel like that's probably a stain on the box though so you might get a better effect if it was sanded. Are you able to see the colour of the wood? Maybe underneath if it's not been treated.
The way it is now its to dark....
Or sand color. First coat...?
You could go a light light blueish coat then a gentle white bush effect...
Half doable, it will work just not the full affect.... but if its just a feature in the becroom it will be ok..
