I love distressed furniture, but it seems to be so expensive in stores, so I decided to try my hand at creating my own. I bought this old bureau for $15 from a neighbor who was getting rid of everything in her shed. I sanded it down, then painted it with an Antique White milk paint, and then rubbed all over with a dark brown glaze to achieve the decorative finish.
