  • Hi Kathy – the Driftwood finish will not white wash, it darkens. If you want a white washed look you can add a white wax over the wood. Many companies make one. Driftwood Finish sells one as does Miss Mustard Seed and Briwax. If you want a lighter driftwood color on the cabinets, check out Rustoleum stain in Sunbleached. It may offer the look you are trying to achieve.

    Hi Bonnie – The Driftwood Finish needs to go over bare wood. It will not penetrate anything else but bare wood. If your paneling is fake, even with sanding, it may not take. You would be better off using Rustoleum stain in Driftwood. You can see how I used it in these two posts:
