{DIY: distressing furniture}

This was my bedroom set when I was a little girl!!! Excellently crafted with kind of a speckled egg finish. After storing it in the attic for 25 years, it was needing some TLC. It’s amazing what a little paint and an electric sander can do. There are plenty of online tutorials on how to paint and distress furniture so check those out before you start your own DIY project.


40 years later, my childhood bedroom set now sits in my daughter's/guest room.
