How to create your own distressed bedroom furniture

To test it out first, choose a smaller piece of furniture like a stool or a small drawer before moving on to bigger pieces like the bed and cabinets. To start off, remove all the hardware in the furniture. For example, the handles in the drawers or any other pieces that you don’t want to get painted. Use a dry rag and apply a deglosser to the surface. If you will be staining the wood, you won’t need this step.

Once you’ve cleaned the stool, apply the primer. There are available primer products that are spray-on or brushed. After the primer dries, apply the paint of your choice. Re-coating is completely up to you. Once you’ve got the right shade of color, let it dry and prepare your sanding tools. You can sand the edges and areas where the piece of furniture is most likely to have wear if used for years. For example, a table would have weathered edges so sand those areas. Keep in mind that you need to sand gently so you don’t over-do it and make it look unnatural. You can also use nails and other tools to make marks on the furniture. Distressed bedroom furniture is a great way to add character and charm in your bedroom interior and the best part is that you can do it to your current furniture pieces.
