DIY DISTRESSED TIMBER
You will need Sandpaper; sanding block; cloth; paintbrush; pale waterbased paint; beeswax furniture polish
ONE Use sandpaper and sanding block to completely strip back your furniture piece until you have exposed the raw timber.
TWO Wipe down the piece with a damp cloth, then paint with one or two coats of paint. Thin the paint with water if you want to be able to see the timber grain.
THREE Once dry, sand off patches of paint and finish by using a dry cloth to apply beeswax to protect timber.
