Everyone is really into rustic farmhouse home decor these days, so this DIY is very timely. It's nice to know you can transform practically any piece of furniture with the farmhouse style.

I have a few pieces of furniture that are perfect candidates for this finish! I will have to keep this tutorial in mind.

Very good tutorial on how to use stains and paint in layers to achieve a certain look on a given piece of furniture. The writing desk she used as an example is very cute and would look great in any house, plus it is rather simple to build and finish. You could use the technique on whatever you would like to refinish-adding or subtracting steps, depending on what you are starting out with-bare wood or a previously stained or painted piece. I would probably finish most things with Polycrylic instead of wax, especially if the item would be used a lot.

I am learning to work with wood and my first project is making my own farmhouse dining table. I am going to buy the chunky legs for it because making legs is way above my pay grade, but this finish is exactly what I want just for the table top. I am going to paint the rest of it a soft white with a distressed finish. I am so glad I came upon this, because this finish is exactly what I need to learn how to do! Will post photos when it is done!

This farmhouse finish would be perfect for my living room coffee table!

Love this look. It's so comforting and stylish.

I adore this style of wash on furniture. It's so rustic and effortless, while still being fashionable and making a statement. I can't wait to try this out!
