A popular furniture and decor style is one that takes ordinary furniture and transforms it into
a distressed or well worn looking piece. Distressed furniture typically shows minimal sheen and
leans toward a subtle flat finish look that has other colors or wood showing through.
This can easily be done by lining the piece with distressed veneer that is sanded and toned in a
Fashion that suits the whole shabby chic genre.
There are several different categories of decorating that this look can be showcased in
such as shabby chic, country, French country, old world, cottage and primitive. Distressing furniture
allows for an easy transformation of a contemporary look to easily be transformed into something
soft with character and charm.
Some popular furniture for distressing are headboards, dining room tables and chairs, end tables,
coffee tables, buffet tables, hutches, desks, dressers, armoires and shelves.
