How do I antique new beadboard wainscoting?
We are "oldivating " our bathroom. We are having a barnwood vanity made and whitewashed. We are using copper fixtures and accessories. Our floor is barnwood white tile. The walls will be wallpapered with this fabric. Our beadboard is bright white! How do I make it match the barnwood whitewash theme? I haven't a clue as to the products and colors which will be best!

What was the color of the Barnwood before the whitewash? I would do a wash over the bead board with that color.
Maybe consider a heritage colour, Farrow & Ball and other paint manufacturers produce 'old' whites which may fit your scheme. I love your choice of fabric, it would be lovely to see the finished result. Good luck with your project.
Take this fabric to the paint store and see if they will colormatch it to something that you can use to "whitewash" the beadboard and perhaps the vanity as well
Great ideas, thank you! I love the fabric too! It's "me"!
What about tea staining it or something like that? That is easy to acheive
Try a watered down light grey chalk paint and use a wide brush to apply on a scrap of wood to tone down the bright white. I just did my kitchen in the white bead board backsplash as my kitchen is grey and white. You have a touch of grey in the shadowing in the material. There is a light beige and a light tan chalk you can find at Walmart. Do a scrap and see what you think. It will definitely age the white.
Google "glaze". You will get a much, much better result than watered down paint which can end up very splotchy in inexperienced hands.
Love the fabric!
You can do a stain wash, where you put the stain on and then quickly remove it. Or you can paint the beadboard one of the colors in that beautiful fabric.
I would ask the person who is building and whitewashing the vanity.
I would pick a color from the fabric and use a water base gel stain. It will give you that washed look you're going for and it's super easy to apply!
Dip your brush into a tinted commercial glaze, and apply an even coat on a manageable section of beadboard. Quickly wipe the surface with a clean cloth to remove excess glaze as desired. Continue the process until the paint is covered. This will provide a protective, aged finish to the beadboard.
