If you are interested in adding vintage flair to your bedroom, consider distressed bedroom furniture to update the space without sacrificing the function and comfort. There are many distressed bedroom furniture ideas you can find to inspire you with their vintage-inspired charm to create a timelessly beautiful bedroom space. But you don’t have to wait for years or invade your grandmother’s attic to have a taste of vintage distressed piece as it is a work you can do yourself too.
Surprisingly, DIY is a relatively simple project. The first step is determining how you want the finished piece to look. For example, you’ll have to paint two colors if you want to see an old paint color underneath the distressed area. If this is what you want, use a brighter color for base coat to show up well when it peeks through the top coat.
You will need to decide if you want to add a stain afterwards. The stain will either age or mute the colors you pick for the distressed bedroom furniture. But if you want to retain your color choice, apply clear water-based polyurethane on the finished project so the surface will not yellow over time.
