Basic Distressing Technique

Here’s a fun one which originally posted last October 2014. If you loved it… enjoy it again and if you haven’t… it’s new to you!

I’ve been trying to think of another fun video since the great response from the “Mom Makeup Tutorial”  and then I remembered my unpainted door… and I knew it was time for a basic distressing tutorial!

Hubby runs a kitchen cabinet makeover business and he does beautiful work…

Basic Distressing Technique: Typical Kitchen Island... Fabulous
Basic Distressing Technique: Sad wife. Happy Wife!!!

But since we are renting this little farm I didn’t want to spend the time doing his über professional/factory quality look so I went with a basic distressing. 

I get a lot of questions about my kitchen cabinets when I post photos of my kitchen so here’s how I did it.

You can see my kitchen (though it’s changed a bit) here.
And you can see our porch here.

Both have an example of this technique. 

The colour used in Minwax’s Charcoal Grey (over a Benjamin Moore white) and I used a must-have Wooster brush to apply. Found here.

Of course, if you are in the Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan you can just have hubby come and do yours!  

If you try this – send me photos and I’ll post them on the Parisienne Farmgirl Facebook Page!

Bonne Semaine!
