How do I create a distressed look using Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint?
Creating the distressed look is easy and can be achieved by simply sanding your painted surface with a medium grit sandpaper. This can be done using a one color or multiple color application. After distressing a one color application, the base surface will appear. After distressing a multiple color application, the previously painted color will appear.
Tip: Sand and distress edges and corners to highlight the detailed areas on your piece.
