Well, Angie and I have just started working on a little distressed furniture project in our bedroom.  We’re taking our time and just doing one piece here and there as time permits.

The walls of the room are a rich cranberry red so after looking through a bunch of colors we decided on (what I call) a Confederate gray.

These were all done using the dry brush method.  Click here to see our tutorial on how we do this:  Dry Brush Method Tutorial

Angie has already completed the first three pieces and we’re going to be sharing them in 3 posts now and in subsequent posts as we complete them.

Thanks for coming by.  Be sure to leave a comment and Share and PIN any pictures you like!
