Okay, all you crafting, blogging buddies. I haven't done much with distressing wood but I'm thinking it can't be all that hard. I've been going in and out of some local craft stores and I see an item, look at the price, and think I could make this for much less for myself. I've done some painting on wood and slate - more of a country theme. So can someone tell me what supplies I need for "distressing" say a shelf or a wood bucket? I saw a nice wooden tray style basket (but made out of wood), with a handle, it was green and then had an aged look to it with some white paint - I'm guessing here. But it was way more than I would pay for something like that. Which got me to thinking how could I make it myself. I also saw how Leslie made that black candle wall sconce from something from the thrift store. So I want to know how to do that. Any pointers??
