Talk about distressed


This bathroom vanity is really distressed looking. The bathroom was remolded and mostly gutted and starting over. The black granite top is new and so is the small tile work over it. It was decided to keep the framework of the cabinet and distress it. Distress it a lot.

The first thing I had to do was to prime the cabinet and all the drawers and doors. Then I painted it a dark wood grain and put some crackle finish over that. On the crackle I painted an off white let that dry so you could see some of the dark grain show thru. Then I went over the entire piece with a black-brown distressing it to the max. It looks like it was drug out of room that had been fire damaged. Which is not a bad look as long everything else is new and crisp.
