Don't know how to whitewash it but if you use the Annie Slaon paint you can make it "distressed " looking. There are loads of videos on YouTube on how to use her paint, it is quite expensive but same technique may be used with other paints I guess

Another to whitewash a table is after you have sanded, rub vaseline on the areas of the table that you want to have a distressed look and then paint your table and when the paint is dried, go over it with a damp cloth and rub well, you will notice that the paint won't have adhered to the vaseline areas and you will have a distressed look without too much trouble.

I forgot to say you don,t need expensive paints to do this, ordinary emulsion or water based paints do the job just as well.
