One of the all time favourite techniques! Simply paint your piece of furniture and wait to dry. With sandpaper (60/80/100) sand areas where you want the wood to come through.
This easily creates that shabby/distressed look. Your call if you want to seal or not for high traffic areas seal with the glaze.
Tip: For dry or untreated wood – don’t wait too long to sand and easy on the hand (don’t be too rough)
