Tools and Materials
- Flat bristle brush
- Can of chalk paint

Step 1: Gather Your Tools and Materials
I know that Hometalkers love to put together lots of elaborate and beautiful creations, but some of the best projects don't involve many tools or materials at all. This is that kind of project! The only items you'll need to distress your wood with the dry brushing technique is a flat bristle brush (I used a synthetic Annie Sloan brush) that gives good coverage of the area you are working on and a can of paint. Again, I opted for an Annie Sloan product (Pure White chalk paint). You should also pick up some absorbent paper towels to wipe excess paint from the brush as we proceed.
