For this finished I used Rust-Oleum Weathered Gray stain for the first coat. I let it dry over night then I distressed the wood. I used 220 grit to lightly sand, focusing on the edges. The last color coat was a white glaze (a glazing medium + antique white latex paint). Finally, the clear coats. Master Bedroom Dresser Reveal
