Seaside Stripes

I started working on this darling dresser
before the holidays

I wasn't sure where
I wanted to go with it
so I kept starting, then walking away
in favor of other projects

It all just sort of came together
and I'm loving the outcome!

Keegan kept me company
while I was waxing this piece
this is his creation!

I think this piece
has a very coastal
beachy vibe

Would be a fabulous pop of color
in a neutral room
(I'm thinking slouchy baskets, white slipcovers...)

Although it would clearly work in a bedroom
I'm enjoying the idea of using it for storage
in the bath
in a hall or entry way

Perhaps a child's room?

In any event, I hope you love it as much as I do
I custom mixed this luscious blue
it's deep and rich
without being overly formal
The freehand stripes aren't perfect
and are slightly random
like your favorite beach towel
or a faded cabana...
