I love distressed furniture. Whether it is old with original chippy paint, or new, made to look old. I have given you instructions before on distressing furniture, but here is another way.
There are several ways to distress. I have to say, I could not live without my palm sander.

(Oops, double photo, sorry!)

I think I feel a trip to the thrift store coming on! Have a great day friends!

I love distressed furniture and we are in the process of remodeling our kitchen. I have been distressing our kitchen cabinets. I have shown them on my blog several posts back. Loved all the pictures.

Thanks for the link! Your furniture pictures make me want to get out my hand sander and go to work on something.

I have to tell you that it's completely weird that you linked to me yesterday. Two days ago, I was on your blog for what I think was the first time. I was using google blogs and searching for articles on burlap because I'm madly in love with it and I needed some inspiration. I actually bookmarked your burlap article and I'm going to add it to my tumblr file.

I won't absolutely swear that I've never been here before because I do remember reading about your kitchen ceiling on The Lettered Cottage.

Anyway, I just thought that was kind of crazy and had to tell you.

Richard Mullingan's chippy painted pieces are my new obsession. I actually just did a post about him.

Have a wonderful weekend.

The secret to attaining satisfaction in products such as oak kitchen cabinets lies in the choice of service providers.

Hi Melaine! This may seem strange - getting a comment on an old post - but I googled distressed furniture and found your blog! I featured it in my blog today and just wanted to let you know.

So glad I found you too!

Awesome ! I just distressed my first piece of furniture! A small nightstand for my bedroom. I just sanded down the nightstand and used a slated blue wood stain that is water based and white tint based. Hopefully, that will do the trick I am not adding anything else. I just sanded the piece again after it was dry to remove some of the stain. Should I do something else to treat the piece??? Also I purchased a sander that has a triangle head should I had purchased a palm sander ? I don't know if I like it too much ! Its great for the corners and little areas but not larger areas.
