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.

As with all my projects, the first step is to scrub the piece well with warm soapy water, rinse and dry well. The top of the bottom shelf was lightly power sanded to smooth the finish then wiped well to remove and sanding dust.
I imagined it in a deep rich navy and ordered classic navy from a new paint line called Jolie Paint.

Look at the lovely packaging they send it in! See this sweet jewelry box and this fun wooden accent chair in malachite. And this stained and painted wood chair in verdigris. Boat are the small tester sizes in the box.

Here is the beautiful classic navy and their signature brush. I LOVE the brush; the construction is so well made and the handle fits my hand perfectly. The natural bristles apply the paint beautifully.

The top has a leather inset which covered easily with this paint. And this beauty has caster…

Wooden Spice Rack in Fusion's Plaster

After a customer purchased this white farmhouse roll top bread box and vintage round wooden tray, she found this round spice rack and sent to me to paint to "match" the other two pieces.

As with every piece, it starts with a good cleaning. This piece had a waxy greasy coating that required scraping and scrubbing to be sure it was all off before moving on to the paint process.

Just like the other 2 pieces I applied two coats Fusion Mineral Paint in the color plaster, a warm white color. 

The edges were lightly distressed to keep the vintage look and hints of wood visible. 

To further age it, I applied Fusion Mineral Paint black wax in the crevices and edges.

The last step was to add a stencil, again like the other 2 pieces in the collection. This Waverly stencil fit perfect. Using a small stencil brush I applied Fusion Mineral Paint in coal black over the secured stencil. 

Once dry, it was lightly sanded to give a worn aged look in keeping with the whole look.

She now just needs to add the jars and this beauty is ready for use and looks fabulous with the other pieces.
