Whitewash look for interior brick wall
 
I have a red brick wall in my kitchen that's currently unpainted.

I want to give it an old-whitewashed look, so some of the brick shows through the white paint.

I found a formula on line that is a combination of Ivory hydrated lime and regular table salt. This formula calls for mixing a 50 pound bag of lime with 10 pounds of table salt. Water is added until it achieves a consistency of pancake batter. Then the whitewash is applied and wiped off in selected areas once it begins to dry.

This would work for me, but my wall is only about 10'X8', do home improvement stores sell a product that's ready mixed?

Thanks
