I have dark knotty pine and I would love to paint it but I dont want to completely get rid of the knots,would like to keep some of the charm and warmth. I know I can white wash them but from what I have seen it covers all the knots. Can someone please tell me how to , I guess, "antique" knotty pine??

We bought a house that had tongue and groove knotty pine that had darkened to a deep amber color. We sanded the walls (chemical strippers did not work) with a belt sander followed by an orbital sander, then stained the walls with a white oil stain from Ace Hardware. All the knots are visible, but muted. The effect is a naturally bright light looking wood.

I would try white latex paint diluted with a just a bit of water rubbed on lightly (in a horizontal motion) with a rag..just on a small sample section. Easy and inexpensive...See how you like it and if you don't just sand right off of your sample section!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

decordemon added this to Interior Brick: Paint it or Leave It?
Leave it: Rustic, textured brick floors are your friend, especially in a mud room or entryway. Why? They pretty much hide almost all dirt. Paint these babies white and say hello to a life of ulra-dirty floors.
For smaller spaces, it beats out a bulky sofa.
