Navy Sideboard / Sofa Table

I loved the bones of this Sklar Pepplar sideboard / sofa table and knew it would look fabulous in a classic color to update the worn original stained finish.

Farmhouse White Magazine Rack


Who doesn't love classic crisp white?


This boring magazine rack was farmhouse styled in classic white


Fusion Mineral Paint in picket fence to be exact. In fact I had many projects (see bottom of post for links) on the go being painted this perfect farmhouse white color.

I love how fresh and clean the solid wood magazine rack now looks, a perfect addition for any home decor color.
