If you’re working with a raw wood surface, start by using a metal brush to open the pores of the wood. This technique works best on raw wood that doesn’t have a finish on it. But, if you have a nice piece of oak furniture with a clear finish, that you want to white-wash. we recommend a good sanding with medium grit sandpaper to rough it up and open up the pores of the wood, so that it can soak up the paint better.

Apply Simplicity

Immediately after applying Simplicity, you’ll take a damp cloth and wipe away as much paint as you want to create the look you’re after.

Build up in layers

If you realize you’ve taken off too much of the Simplicity, you’ll simply go over it again with another coat of paint and wipe it off again. You can build up your coverage in layers. That’s all there is to it. Pretty simple isn’t it?
