It's hard to tell from the picture, but is there a real texture that you can feel? Or just a faux effect?

Once I was looking at a book at our library, and it showed how to make paint look old and cracked, weathered, and faded. Seems kind of funny, when I paint, I measure success by how much better I make a project look.Well beauty is in the eye of the beholder..I guess. I do like the look of the faux effects though.

Happy painting, Paul.

This is a texture finish... Trowel on

I also do furniture and have people waiting in line for it, I do distress using a chain but no pants leg as it really hurts when you slam it against a dresser!!!
