This is a safe way to make an old school lime wash. We use a mixture of just white latex paint, the brightest white that you want to want to get and we're going to mix it with some water. Now you can mix it with equal parts, more pink to water or water to paint whatever you want. So it's your personal preference on how light you want the whitewash to be on this floor. How you know how covering you want it to be. We are going to mix a one-to-one ratio to start and we're going to see how that looks. Now. First thing you want to do obviously is clean.
Your floor really well sweep it and then use your shop back and really really get that dust off and for application are going to there there's several ways: you can do it all right, so you can use a brush. I'm not going to use a brush, hence the small brush. It's just for demonstration purposes. You can brush it on and get kind of a streaky look to it, which is pretty cool or you can roll it on. I really recommend that looks weird or you can apply it. I guess with the roller and then wipe it off. Take a dry cloth will be dragged along, but just wipe it into the brain back and pull it forward back and forth.
What we're actually going to start with here is this foam applicator. So this is going to make things, go a lot quicker and I think it's going to give a nice book to it and it's going to press that paint down in the brain really well. After all this is said and done. We are going to take a regular polyurethane sealer and we're going to seal the top like a Minwax, sealer and just clear poly, and that will seal everything out because the thin nature of the latex and water, it's not going to really protect it really well, and You are going to want to seal that on top, you can also do a wax, which is nice, but a wax. It can wear off really really fast and you want something a little more permanent, especially for my family.
I got the three year old running around and Dean denting the floor, so we're going to want a little bit of better protection on it. Just take with us and more mix this up and we'll show you how to to start doing this. So I've got two inches of lukewarm water in the bottom of this bucket and I'm pouring in an equal part white latex teeth. Consequently, these little tops of pink hands are awesome. I won't have drop all we're going to give this a stir, make sure everything is incorporated properly. It's really thin and bring in here for a closer look check this out.
