I’ve been distressing everything recently because the supplies were out and it’s fun. I originally had planned to distress this side table that I picked up at the thrift store and sanded the top, but then my mother-in-law pointed out it’s not real wood so it wouldn’t distress nice. Discouraged, I’ve been using it as is- complete with the sanded surfaces. Yuck.
I highly recommend taping off areas you don’t want to get paint on… I did not and you can tell, but I wasn’t super concerned seeing that I just wanted this project done and I couldn’t find the tape fast enough.
