White wash may seem like a paint, but it isn't. It is actually a lime and water mixture that is allowed to activate into a paste overnight. White wash applications are more like a thin layer of plaster than paint. White wash doesn't peel as paint does and has lasted on many houses as an exterior finish for over 30 years & whitewashing is a technique that allows you to brighten your wood without hiding the grain pattern. Methods for staining woods white vary according to the type wood you're planning to finish. Whitewashing is best suited for pine.
