HOW TO GET DARK DISTRESSING UNDER WHITE - tutorial


See how I get a dark distressed look
on light colored furniture




I had 4 wood chairs that were plain wood with no color
or stain. I wanted to paint them and end up with white
 distressed paint over a dark color and I wanted to do it
 quickly. This is how I did it in 1 day.




My secret was to use a flat oil based spray on the areas that I
 want to distress. The flat paint dries quickly so it doesn't add
 too much extra waiting time, and the oil based paint won't 
sand off as easily when I distress the top coat of ASCP.

DO NOT DO THIS WITH A GLOSSY SPRAY PAINT


Once the brown was dry I sprayed the chairs in a creamy 
white Annie Sloan Pure White & Old White mix, using

The edges and details were all distressed by sanding with 220
and finally all the chairs were waxed and polished.



I hope this gives you some 
great ideas to try on your own!

This is the same technique I used on this red
dresser shown below, and country bar stool.
