Whitewashed wood planks...

The family just took a quick trip down to the shore today and being down by the water always makes me think about beautiful white painted or white washed wood planks... Such a gorgeous, simple and clean way to make a visual statement without hitting you over the head...

It's one of the easiest treatments to actually get installed, especially if the wood is already stained in the color you want...  You can basically go to any flooring supplier and scan through quite a few different options of whitewashed, cerused, limed or pickled woods, all of which, in lay man's terms amount to treating the wood and giving it a lighter, bleached out or whitened finish...  It's a great option for people who just are not able to commit to colors in their house, but would like a focal wall... Perfect solution!
