Give new pieces a vintage distressed paint effect look with this clever DIY technique.
You will need:
Step one. Dab the Vaseline along bits of the edges and places where furniture would naturally look aged.
Step two. With Resene Twizel, paint over the furniture completely.
Step three. Once dry, use the cloth to lift off the paint over the Vaseline to reveal pieces of the wood underneath.
Step four. Give it a thorough wipe and there you have it – a quick way to age up your furniture.
Step five. Finish in Resene Aquaclear to seal all the distressed areas for an easy clean surface.
Top tip: You can also use sandpaper to create a worn effect on furniture, using it to rub areas that would normally suffer the most wear and tear. Wipe clean and finish in Resene Aquaclear to seal the surface.
