Some of the old knotty pine interior walls will be reused to make wainscoting in the Westerly house playroom, but homeowners Shayla and Scott want to brighten the room. Mauro Henrique works with apprentice Kathryn to whitewash the pine with an oil-based stain. He teaches her to paint in long vertical strokes, about three boards at a time, and then go back with a rag to wipe down each board once from top to bottom.
