    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint all legs and aprons in Delicate with a flat brush. This coat doesn't need to be very thick for the amount of distressing shown in this project.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint tops of benches and 3 planks of the table top in Delicate (refer to final photo). Paint 2 of each table top plank in Everlasting and Refreshing.
  4. Once all paint is dry use a sander to distress. Focus on edges and knots in the wood.
