    Thank you for these great tips. I find them quite helpful. Though not a novice to painting furniture, I am to distressing. I really like the distressed look and want to do a three piece wall unit. Explain Dry brush please. Is this a specific type of paint brush? If so, where might I purchase one?

    Those furniture pieces are quite beautiful. It is actually 8:18 am here. Where do you reside that it is now 12:18 pm? Just curious.

    I have an old mantle..my grandmother’s. It is a maple. I want to distress it with white. Do I still have to paint a dark and then white?

      It all depends on the look you’re going for. Just be careful, sometimes stain can be very tricky to paint over.
