The more distressed the better. Especially with used furniture. There’s no better way of hiding the flaws of used furniture than adding distressing! In fact, adding a touch of distressing makes a piece of furniture go from looking cheap to chic!

My favorite of the finished pieces is this super cute children’s chair that I picked up from New Unto Others just last night.
I also painted a baby bassinet that I’ve been storing for months.
