    are you able to sand the top or is it not actually wood?

    I think I can sand it

    Look into Annie Sloan. Her paints are a bit costly, but the look is unmistakable. She has books and YouTube videos to help you get that distressed look. You can even research how to do it with homemade Chalk Paints. You can make your own with plaster of Paris. (You can use non-sanded grout, but it's not good to sand that as it gives off toxic stuff that not everyone will tell you that).

    Also, Annie Sloan has no prep work.
