How to Whitewash Farmhouse Wicker Baskets
Farmhouse baskets are a great way to display a Fall harvest.
Prepare to spray whitewash baskets
Set up a dry, flat work area and cover it with a large drop cloth to protect surfaces from any overspray.
How to make whitewash with saltwash
To make the saltwash finish: In the detail sprayer paint cup add 1 cup of water, 1/8 cup white latex paint, and 1 scoop of salt wash powder. Mix thoroughly with a paint stick until smooth. Then, hold the sprayer six-to-eight inches away from the basket and spray the surface completely with the Saltwash in an even coat. This mixture is thinner than paint and will require that you hold the sprayer at a further distance for the best coverage.
Spray Whitewash with Paint Sprayer
Load the FLEXiO 3000 sprayer with a paint color of your choice and attach the detail nozzle.
Hold the sprayer five-to-six inches away from the basket and spray it completely, making sure to coat it evenly and cover all the nooks and crannies.
Fill with fresh flowers or decorations
Let the basket dry completely before filling with fresh flowers.
