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…

Fusion Mineral Paint project # 1

I have been given the chance to try Fusion Mineral Paint and wanted to share my first project I did using it. I chose Laurentien which was listed as a twist on robin's egg blue (totally in my realm of favs). When it arrived I found it very minty, my youngest daughter's favorite color. ;)


An antique wood chair I planned to paint for the front door became the project of choice to use it on. I scrubbed and sanded down the chair to the bare wood.
 the before with stamps and glitter glue
 sanded to the solid wood construction
 and on goes the first coat
Once the first coat of paint went on, smooth as they said it would, it proved to be easily covering the light wood. It was however too opaque and modern looking for the old chair.
 I had stained the seat in hickory and got the idea to use the hickory stain as a wash over the green.
 It turned out perfect giving the chair dimension and kept it looking its age but with a ton of life.

thank you for sharing this great paint Fusion.. stay tuned for more projects, and if you want to give this beauty a new home, please get in touch with any of the contact links in the upper right corner ;)
