Love the chest against the wall! How did you get the distressed look? - May I have the steps to distressing the chest/stand on the wall? Thanks!

this is an old chest we found in a friends shed, it was painted an awful color so we decided to strip the paint and then sanded it down to the bare wood, after that we just used a neutral wood satin to revive the wood color. All this was done over 20 years I'm sorry I don't remember much more.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Houzz Tour: Living in Color
These green stairs instantly brought a smile to my face. When I asked if they were something she re-painted from time to time, she said, "The green stairs are here to stay. I don't re-paint them frequently, I love the weathered look. When we bought the house, the stairs were covered in cheap carpeting, so we stripped them in preparation for stain, but then decided on the green. We love the bold statement it gives as people enter the house."
Shawn Gauthier added this to Stair Flair: Staircases Unlike Any Other
Paint them. Here’s an easy and inexpensive way to add a unique splash to your staircase: paint! This lime green hue is playful and cheery, and the perfect entrance to this eclectic landing.
Becky Harris added this to Bold Color: Yes You Can!
Her creative eye took her straight to the stairs with a bucket of lively green paint.
Samantha Schoech added this to Crafty Homes Unleash a Wildly Creative Spirit
Good ideas, like painting the stairs spring green, coupled with found objects, like this old cabinet that's been stripped to shabby chic perfection, are major craftiness indicators.See more of this colorful house
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Green
Green doesn't have to be on the wall. Use it as an accent on furniture, trim, doors and stairs. I love this surprising, cheery green staircase.
