Tutorial for Using Vaseline to Distress Furniture!


Tutorial for Using Vaseline to Distress Furniture!

Plan on painting a new furniture piece, but want the antique look? Well, distressing furniture can be difficult with sandpaper and many coats of paint! Did you know that you could distress furniture with Vaseline? I sure didn’t! I never realized how easy and fast this is to do! Want to do this yourself? You’ll need the following:

  • Vaseline
  • Your Furniture Piece
  • Paint Brush

That’s it! Here are some pointers to remember from the video:

  1. You’ll want to put the Vaseline on thick, especially around the corners.
  2. Spray paint may be easier use over the Vaseline.
  3. You can use sandpaper if you wish, but you do not have to.

I’ve just recently tried this tutorial myself and loved it. I now plan to distress my dining room chairs.
