Messed up whitewash, URGENT, PLEASE HELP !!!!


I wanted to whitewash my bathroom cabnits. I must have put the whitewash on to thick because it looks just horrible. It looks like a bad paint job instead of stain. What is the easiest and fastest way to fix this?

Thank you.

You'll need to use a paint stripper to get it off and then start over. There are many non-toxic ones that don't have all the fumes. One I've used is Multi-Strip. I would go to a paint store and ask what they recommend.
