Vintage Distressing for Antique or Rustic Style Furniture
A blast from the past, vintage furniture has stood the test of time, and it hasn’t lost in popularity. It could be because vintage furniture has the feeling of home in its worn edges and distressed texture. Or it could be that vintage furniture already features distressing, so you don’t have to worry about wear and tear.
Whatever the reasons behind a passion for antique furniture, we have just the thing to fulfill anyone’s desire to have vintage wood furniture in your home. Get the look and feel of an antique on new and sturdy wood furniture with our full vintage or light vintage distressing options (available on all of our furniture).
How do we do it? We start out with newly treated wood, and then we personally distress each piece by hand. Light vintages furniture has a few scratches, dents, and wormholes. Full vintage furniture has much more pronounced and densely located scratches, dents, and wormholes.
One of ways we further antique our furniture is by pairing vintage distressing with a rubbed finish, which removes stain from the high spots and edges. This indicates a rough or worn appearance, and can be either lightly rubbed for subtle look, or heavily rubbed for a more rustic look.
Another antiquing option is to add a glazed coating. This technique darkens the grain of the wood, and makes it stand out more noticeable. Glazing furniture adds age to any piece, and pairs greatly with both vintage distressing and rub.
With all of our different finish options and their combinations, we’re able to make antiques new and to your taste. Simple browse through our products, find the pieces that you like, contact a dealer near you, and let them know how you want your newly antiqued furniture.
