Painted furniture with an antique or aged finish has been popular for years. I love to give paint a worn or old look, so I hope the trend continues for years to come.
There are many ways to achieve an antique finish on painted furniture and home decor accessories. I may have developed a few antiquing techniques myself, like using a baby bottle brush to make "age spots" on paint.
Today I'm sharing several tutorials showing how I antique paint or make the paint appear aged.
Do you paint furniture and how do you feel about antiqued or aged furniture? Leave a comment if you have the time and thanks for being here, Kathy

I’ve never worked with paint to achieve this look. I am an amateur.
I love all your projects!
