Create the distressed look on almost any wooden piece using this technique.
Don't spend a fortune on a vintage bench that wobbles when you sit. Get the same distressed look on a sturdy seat you already own with our helpful steps. We'll show you how to paint and sand a piece of furniture so it looks beautifully aged. Before you begin, choose a bench that's the right size and style for your room, then select two paint colors, one for the top coat and another for the base, which will peek through from underneath. A farmhouse bench of this size and style is perfect for a window seat or entryway.
