Living near the beach is certainly an inspiration for the blue decor around my house. Shown here is a tissue box, a small shelf, box for my dining table and a guest box filled with goodies for my sister's visit. Each of these pieces were made using recycled wood, painted with acrylics and have a wax finish. The furniture wax by Minwax is something new I am trying and really like. I was able to mix the wax with my paints for an antique look.
