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.

Country Chic post #6 ~ Aurora & walnut table




I loved the look of aurora on the Country Chic paint color page but I loved it even more when I chose to use it on the base of a vintage solid wood table I had stripped and sanded. I stained the top walnut and the base needed a color that was "vintage" like but fun and aurora was perfect. The color is a deep teal which goes well with the refinished wood tones. I am dying to try it on a larger piece in the future.

A quick recap of the table relove starts with the table top sanded down to the natural wood to eliminate the engraved scribbles and words and other unsightly marks. It then got a good scrubbing with soap and water and a scrub brush, rinsed and left to dry well.


 I stained the top in Minwax walnut stain
then time to paint aurora on the base, one coat was all it took to cover, the edges got a light distressing as I like to keep vintage pieces looking and feeling their age and it also is helpful for future wear all looking the part, another in keeping with age step was using Danish oil to seal the stain and while I was at it, I gave a quick wipe over the body color which added a nice finish to the aurora.


 Here it is all finished, what a sweet entry way table, perfect catch all for keys, great spot for a bouquet of flowers or a family photo gallery with pretty frames
