You put the lime in the latex paint, and you shake it all up.

lime-washed paint

So, I’ve mentioned my fascination with paint glazes before- candlelight and river rock among the top choices.  But I was  looking online and just recently saw an interno limewash finish that I’m liking more and more.  The picture above is from the design assistant at Coastal Living, and the rustic patina is growing on me.

Most of our walls are white- and I’d really like to add color and depth to the walls of the kitchen (once it’s renovated).  M is also kind of a science geek- so the chemical reaction that causes the layering look is intriguing to both of us.

Has anyone ever used limewash before?  Is it easy to use?

  1. Limewashes can be difficult to apply…even more difficult to repair when it gets damaged. Take a look at http://www.americanclay.com for some great pics and installation instructions about their clay plaster. We sell it in 43 different colors and 3 textures. Plus, it’s pretty easy to work with.
