This says it was "whitewashed". Can you give details? Is it a paint wash? bleach? OMy house is weathered cedar (in many shades from black to yellow).

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
True Whitewash is a paint-type of application that generally contains slaked lime and chalk.

There are several recipies out there which you can find online, and a couple of powdered mixes - also called Kalsomine - that you can use. Your local paint & hardware store should be able to help you get the supplies you need for your project.

An unusual yet memorable modern exterior with whitewashed wood paneling and white metal doors instantly makes me think of a relaxed summer beach house. Do you go for white, too?
