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…

Cece Caldwell Brand rep project package #2 antique coffee table

January 2016 brings a new year and a new project as a CeCe Caldwell paint rep.

As I was scrubbing up this oak dining table and considering the color options, it struck me as vintage white with dark details. The edges have great details to enhance and the vintage white keeps it neutral, fresh and able to fit in so many homes existing décor. I also purchased this super cool Queen Anne style coffee table that conjures up the same color scheme ideas.

My Cece rep pack #2 held just what I needed to make this vision happen; vintage white paint, hickory stain and endurance finish. It also has Chesapeake blue but that I will save for another post. ;)

I decided to start with the coffee table first to see the end result I am envisioning.
first order of business; a good scrubbing and sanding both power and hand (which took forever as the old stain was very crackly) then scrubbed again
1 thin coat of CeCe vintage white paint was applied then some sanding block distressing to keep the vintage piece aged
To further age it, I applied via dry brush technique, the CeCe hickory stain. To allow for easier movement of the stain and less saturation into the paint,  I had applied a coat of satin varathane before doing this step
the stain accented the curvy carved legs and sides, again I sanded the piece ending with medium to heavy distressing all over
The final step once all was dry was to seal with 3 coats of endurance sealer. Time to stage it for your viewing pleasure.
