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.

small round dining table ~ SOLD~


This little table I picked up hoping it would help us when we were table-less but it was not quite what we needed so I will paint up and sell. I am planning to do it a dark black so it will fit more kitchen color schemes. There were many good suggestions of chili pepper red, lime green black and white.



today I put on two coats of steel grey chalk paint



but against that judgment I distressed lightly the table edge. I waxed the legs and put two coats of polycrylic for durability on the top.






but now I think I will age it to before selling


 and that is what I did today March 9th and really like it, above the last leg not done and below done


it adds dimension and old feel. I waxed the entire table and legs to seal it all. It is now ready for sale.
