A Little Distressing Goes a Long Way

I finally did the distressing on the china cabinet today.  I wanted to share what a difference it made!

This is before distressing...

Now, after...

See the difference?  The handles stand out better.

I just can't believe I've went this long on not painting this sucker!

So much better...I can't stop staring....

And the top got a fresh new look.

Sara goes to the DR in the morning.  There has been a little improvement, so I thank you all for your prayers.

Now, I can get on to other things.   
I have a slipcover I am working on for a dear sweet lady in Texas.  This will be my first time doing this technique and I am so very happy that she entrusted me to do this. 

So stay tuned!


  1. Look wonderful. I agree, sometimes a bit of distressing does bring out the detail in a piece.
    Continues prayer and hoping she feels better.
    Hugs, Gee
