I am not a big fan of distressed furniture. Let me clarify. I am not a big fan of DIY distressed furniture. You know, the pieces that folks pick up at Flea Markets or off Craigslist and then paint, sand and seal. The distressing tends to be very balanced, matchy-matchy, and intentional.
Check out this authentically distressed kitchen table and chairs.
The table has variations of color. The nail holes are recessed and dark. There is a bit of white on the back sides of the leg turns. (What's it from? Sap, you think?).
I'll share more pieces from this house in my next post.
