Trunk with Distressed Paint Finish

Marian of Miss Mustard Seed says she is often asked by readers how to achieve a specific finish from an inspiration piece.

Marian had recently built a Pottery Barn knock off trunk coffee table and decided it was the perfect opportunity to replicate the rustic paint finish.

She shares all the steps from beating up the wood to painting to waxing in a video tutorial so you too can get that gorgeous aged paint finish.

Would you ever believe that coffee table was built using new wood?!?

The original inspiration came from the colorful patina of the Rebecca Trunk from Pottery Barn.
