distressed painted furniture idea with a beach theme
Furniture pieces that look weathered as though they were beaten down by ocean winds and salt spray.

To achieve the rustic distressed look, layer a variety of shades to provide depth. For a varied effect, distress the piece with different grades of sand paper. You might also want to beat up your furniture. Well, hammering it softly that is. In any case, make sure that the natural wood shows through here and there.
