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.

Miss Mustard Seed milk paint ~ Eulalie's Sky dresser



Milk paint and antiques go hand in hand in my opinion, I just so happen to have a great antique dresser and a new Miss Mustard Seed milk paint color I am dying to try, Eulalie's Sky.


I love a paint and stain combo so first step was to sand down the top and all drawer fronts to bare wood then scrubbed well. Scrubbing well is a HUGE step to success when refinishing.


I went with thinner coats but you can see the coverage between 1 and two here, I chose to put 4 thinner coats in total on the base


the bare wood was conditioned and stained in 2 colors ending with a dark walnut






This was my first time using Miss Mustard Seeds hemp oil and I have to say I loved how easily it went on and the depth it adds to the stain and the wood.. both photos show the oil on the left side. I waited 30 minutes and wiped off then repeated in two hours as per bottle instructions

I scrubbed and polished the original hardware and added two new ceramic knobs to the top drawers and once all was dry, reassembled and this is the end result
