|blurry picture, sorry.|
So I decided to work on it, one coat of paint, a few days of procrastinating, and then finally this afternoon I finished it. My house is pretty much filled with this type of furniture, do I even have a table that isn't distressed? Yes, one and it is next. I love the old stuff...and I love to distress it. I even did my dining table, nothing is safe with me.

I don't use anything special to distress, depends on the size of the piece, most of the time I use old wall paint I have laying around, or Oop's paint from Home Depot. As for the stain, any stain...I tend to like the dark stain, like walnut. But I have used the colors too. Easy peasy, after you sand off as much as you want...you wipe the stain on and wipe off. I don't do anything further. You could put a clear coat on I guess, but I like it, as is.
