Shabby Chic Table before and after

I've always loved the slightly distressed look.  Good thing, cuz I sport that look quite often.  Sometimes it's 10:00 before I run a comb through my hair.  Hey, with three kids 4 and under... well that's my excuse.  But we talkin' 'bout furniture here, not me.  Love distressed furniture.  However, after painting something, the thought of "messing" it up freaks me out!  So this isn't a major distressing or anything, just some sandpaper rubs here and there so the gray I painted underneath peeks through, but I really like how it turned out and I see more "distressing" in my future.



  1. I think you should go for it and REALLY distress something! I think if you approach the project with a "This is going to be my table to distress" attitude it will be easier to do it right after you've painted it so prettily! :)
