DIY Distressing Furniture

I love distressed furniture. Not only is it great for that “shabby chic” look, but when you have the inevitable wear and tear on your furniture, it’s all hidden in the distressing :)

Below are some super chic and fabulous distressed pieces!

Here’s the blog post from when I did my own DIY distressed dresser! This was such a fun project & it has held up so well over the past year!

This was my Dad’s dresser as a kid! (and mine, obviously). Here’s the before:

And the finished product! blogger-image-1864296976

After the distressing project, I actually ended up taking off all of the brassy handles & restoring them back to their original shine & color :)

The dresser has even gotten a little more distressed as I’ve used it over the past year, but the original wood showing through just gives it more character!
