Like a pair of your favorite blue jeans this  dresser was painted in a blue ombre. The base paint is Behr called Durango Blue. I added Behr Polar Bear White to create lighter blues for blending to get an ombre effect. I kept the original hardware and spray painted it hammered copper. I stained the top in GF Java Gel Stain. The entire piece is top coated in GF HPTC in satin. This was my first attempt to create an ombre piece and am inspired to try other color combinations.
