Distressed Kitchen Table

In our grandmothers’ day, if a piece of furniture or a picture frame was distressed, it meant it had been around for generations and most of the paint had worn off in areas that had been rubbed by hands or nicked by being moved too many times. Today, the distressed look is sought-after, and it can add character and style to many types of decor.

Surprisingly, the process is relatively simple. The first step is to determine what you’d like the finished piece to look like. If below the distressed areas you’d like to see an old paint color, as if the piece has been painted many times over, you’ll need to paint two colors. Consider a brighter color for the base coat so it shows up well as it peeks through the top coat. If you want the rubbed-off areas to reveal bare wood, the technique requires only one coat.

Rub away small portions of the top coat using steel wool to reveal the accent color and make the table appear aged. Light rubbing will reveal small amounts of color, while vigorous rubbing will allow more of the accent color to show through. Focus on areas that would show wear due to normal use, like corners, edges and legs.
