Forever Blue

By MaryEllen at 100 Thousand Welcomes in Stratford, CT.

This 4 drawer solid oak dresser is a nod to Summer in New England! Inspired by the beautiful blue hydrangea blooms seen in every Coastal town, this piece was hand sanded with 180 grit paper, and painted in Harbor Blue milk paint by Shackteau Interiors and sealed with General Finishes Flat Out Top coat. The top was sanded down using an orbital sander and a sanding pass of 120, 220 and white washed using GF Antique white milk paint and sealed with wax for a beachy look.
