If you were me, would you distress this antique piece?
I LOVE the look of antique furniture that has been painted and distressed - sort of the farmhouse, French country look. You know, a little old teal paint peaking out, maybe some white, etc - while still seeing sanded parts of the wood color. I got this buffet at a steal, only $200 - it's not a family heirloom or anything and I'm seriously thinking of distressing it but I'm having a hard time convincing myself to attack it. Do you think it would look good distressed?
