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.

Cece Caldwell's Las Vegas Fuschia



When I received my Cece Caldwell Paint brand rep package this month, I found one of the newest 4 out of 6 released colors in my box; Las Vegas Fuschia. The name alone made me thing glitter and girls so I went with a sweet nightstand in cherry tones to try it on.



 


 



 after the first coat dried overnight well I tried putting the kukui stain over it to deepen


 
but found it was not really the look I had in mind so repainted 2 more coats back over


I put a layer of poly on the top to add durability, note the color deepens quite a bit with poly, then I put another coat of fuchsia over it and waxed the entire piece a couple times and distressed the edges to bring out the wood details



 




 and I added fun drawer liner for another twist of fun


This bold but sweet pink is perfect for the glam princess weather she be wee or teen or anyone wanting a bit of Las Vegas to add pizzazz to your room! Check out Cece Caldwell to see the other 3 newly released colors and perhaps a sneak peek of the 2 yet to come!


disclosure: As a CeCe Caldwells paint rep, they provided me with this paint in exchange for creating this showcase piece, thanks Cece!
