A Day at the Beach

By Brooke Sobol, Artist at Heartland Vintage Market in Cameron Park, CA.

A true beachy look has a laid-back vibe. I get mine by layering paint colors, applying clear wax here and there in between layers, and heavily distressing to reveal a symphony of colors. 

Gel stain with heavy sanding adds an earthiness to the look.
