Walnut uprights between hard maple surfaces.
The distressing process is, for the top; power sanding with DeWalt drill sander with 60g. Applying dark mahogany gel coat, wait one hour, then pour on some satin poly and rub in. The poly will loosen the gel coat making dark and light spots simulating age rather well.
For the bottom; painting with equal parts latex paint, water, and plaster of Paris, then sanding corners and surfaces with 220g.
I took this to my retail location where it will get a wax solution that will give it an aged patina and a more finished look.
Thank you for looking.
