Painting and Distressing Furniture 101- Bringing Farmhouse Style Home

A few weeks ago, I did just this.  Now, mark my words. I will be painting my kitchen cabinets.  But, hubby will need to be gone longer than a day or two.

Don’t hate.  I really did love the color of my bedroom set.  About 9 years ago it was all I could have dreamed of.  But,  I change, my style changes, it happens.

I really wanted to create a post that demystifies the idea of painting furniture.  With a few of the right products, it can really be an easy project to tackle.

This is what you will need to created distressed furniture:

First off, this paint brush is the amazing.   This improves the application of the paint.  It goes on nice and smooth.  The only thing it lacks in is getting into the cracks.  For this I use an Angle Paint Brush.

Here are the other items I used to paint distressed furniture:

  • Round Paint Brush
  • Plaster of Paris
  • White Latex Paint
  • Sanding Sponges
  • Furniture Wax

So I began.

  • I took everything out of my bedroom, took out my mattress, and covered the floor where the bed touches the floor with newspaper, to protect the carpet.   I ended up with a big pile of mess in my bathroom.
  • The next step was to clean the furniture well.  This step is very important.  You want to make sure you clean it well so that the paint will adhere to the wood.  When I had wiped everything down, it was time to get painting and distressing furniture.
