Furniture With A Distressed Finish

Aged Painting And Distressed Finish

Are you looking for a furniture piece with character? A newly popularized furniture trend is the aged painted or wood with a distressed finish. In a state as full of history as Michigan, nothing is more beautiful than a distressed piece of furniture. Foxwood Furniture Restorations embraces this beauty.

A distressed finish, also known as aged painting, is used to make new furniture appear vintage and aged. In addition, distressed finishes are often created by making the paint seem worn. Aged painting is used to create a worn appearance to a new piece of furniture in colors besides the natural wooden coloring with brief glimpses of the original wooden base.

Aging and Distressed Finish Techniques

There are several distressing and aging techniques that Foxwood Restorations can do to make your furniture piece as beautiful as possible. Also, keep in mind that each distressed piece is different than the next. Each piece is completely unique. One particular distressing technique is called the wet-distressing technique. This is a popular technique when layering colors as it creates a naturally worn effect. Another popular technique is the dry-distressing technique which is best to use with single colors with a desire to expose the natural wooden layer. Lastly, the resist technique is used to create a chipping paint appearance meant to show antiquity.

This particular client was tired of dated stain look and wanted to spruce it up a bit. The set in “circa 1950” is of excellent quality, featuring triple geared slides and is made of solid maple. We here at Foxwood Furniture chemically stripped the hutch table and 8 chairs.

The set had 2 chairs that were broke at the joints, which our skilled craftsmen were able to repair in house. Our in-house upholsterer recovered all the seats with a tight, new beautiful fabric.
