As part of our house remodel, I decided to paint our old master bedroom furniture. It’s new home will be in our guest room. I wanted something to coordinate with our new bamboo hardwood floor, our newly painted white baseboards and Sherwin William’s Agreeable Gray walls.
I went for it and distressed the furniture using the Vaseline method.
It was so easy! Trust me—it was easy!
I forgot to take a Before picture, so I quickly snapped one in the middle of the job.
I lightly sanded this headboard.
Using my finger, I applied the Vaseline to the areas I wanted to distress.
Next, I spray painted.
I used Rust-Oleum Satin Paint and Primer in white.
I waited about an hour and gave it another coat.
I didn’t wait for it to completely dry before I took a rag and wiped away the paint where the Vaseline was applied.
Here is the end result. I was extremely pleased with the final outcome!
