I was in the process of building a new trim bench, and I was inspired to go for a different finish. I’ve been cruising Pinterest lately, and distressed paint and paint/wood finishes are abundant. Even though I love the beauty of natural and stained wood, something different seemed like a neat experiment. After completing the paint, I contemplated skipping the distressing step, but that wasn’t the original plan so I went for it.
What do you folks think of this type of finish?
A bench like this is my third favorite trim tool, right behind the miter saw and the nail gun. Being 16” high, it is perfect for installing crown, or hanging fixtures. The drawers are handy for small hand tools, and they can be removed to make the bench lighter if you’re moving it around a lot.
