Making a piece of furniture look old and distressed takes a few layers of paint and sand paper. Using black or antique white paint works best for the main top coat. Paint the undercoat sea foam green and allow it to dry. Apply your top coat and allow it to dry completely. Now, take your sand paper, go over the edges until the color beneath shows through. You can even take a hammer to the furniture and put a couple of dings in it. Experiment with colors. It will turn out perfect!
