Double Distressed Farmer's Table - finished tableAlthough this table was already distressed, I distressed it again using the "wet" method for distressing.


Total Time: 3 hours

Yield: 1


  • table
  • French Teal chalkboard paint
  • water based varnish
  • foam paint brushes
  • sandpaper and/or finishing sander
  • soft rag


  1. I sanded the top of the table because it was painted black and none of the black paint had worn off like it had on the legs. I also lightly sanded the sides of the table to remove some more of the black paint.

  3. Using a foam brush, I painted the entire table with French Teal chalk paint.

  5. Before the paint dried, I wet a soft rag in a container of water and rubbed some of the chalk paint off of the legs and top to give it a distressed look and to allow the black paint underneath to show through.

  7. Allowing the paint to dry, I varnished or "sealed" it with a water based varnish.
    And here is my "double distressed" farmer's table.
