  • These are awesome! How did you achieve the distressing?
    By RYOBI NATION, on August 21, 2018
    • Thanks! Here are the steps I took:
      1. stain them in Dark Walnut stain, then apply 1 or 2 coats of Clear Shellac to prevent bleeding
      2. apply crackle medium or white school glue, let dry

      3. spray chalk paint on(<-- you really have to use chalk paint, not look like chalk paint, or it will not crackle)
      4. use detail sander for some area, and wet towel for wet sanding as well
      5. do apply either poly or wax to protect your chalk paint
