Rustic Charm

If you are interested in a distressed, primitive look, bring the look to life with layers of paint. First, remove the existing finish with an electric orbital sander. Next, apply single coats of different paint colors in random areas, one at a time, allowing two hours for each color to dry. Lastly, rough up and partially remove the paint with the orbital sander, apply a stain over all the surfaces with a rag, then apply a sealant.
