Come Sail Away

Living in coastal Connecticut, I am inspired by all things nautical.  What was once a honey-colored vintage dresser is now a masterpiece perfect for the Captain's Quarters using products by General Finishes.  

The top of the dresser and front of the drawers have been stained a rich medium-dark color using GF Gel Stain in Mahogany. The perfect sealant to protect that beautiful stain is GC High Performance Topcoat in Satin.  

GF Milk Paint in Coastal Blue was used on the rest of the piece for that perfect shade of navy.  The finish of the milk paint gives the piece a rich, classic look.  

The sides of the drawers continue the nautical theme with the Coastal Blue Milk Paint and a champagne/gold colored stripe.
