An old bench prettied up

This bench goes with a bedroom suite that has been in my family for at least 60 years. The other pieces have gone on to their reward throughout the years. I re-covered the top 10 yrs ago but the legs were pretty banged up. Since I now think that everything needs to be painted, I decided to re-cover it and paint it another color. I guess because it is so old, the paint just soaked in and I never could get it to cover completely. I was too lazy to go get more paint so I stood back and looked at it and decided that it looked like I had tried to distress it! What do you think?
And yes, I know that my floors need to be cleaned.
