This distressed, grungy piece turned out exactly
the way I wanted. Keep reading and you just may want
to make one too.

Slatted wooden panel, brown paint, antiquing medium,
printed tissue paper scraps, baby wipes

To begin, I distressed the panel by pounding it with various tools such as a hammer, garden trowel, and screw driver. Next, I painted the panel using the silver paint. I didn’t want to cover the panel entirely so I used a dry brush technique to leave some of the wood exposed.

Once dry, I adhered small scraps of the printed tissue paper with the gel medium.

I centered the Fresh Coffee stencil on the panel, taped it down, and stenciled it with the brown paint. Using the Love Grows stencil, I used the same brown paint to stencil only the dots and arrows.

To finish, I painted on the antiquing medium and wiped it off with a baby wipe repeatedly until I got the look I wanted.

I love how this piece looks old.
