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.

Fusion Fresco


Fusion Mineral Paint has a new product to add texture and dimension to your décor called fresco.

Fresco?.. old world plaster look is what I think of when I saw it. I needed just the right piece for my vision so when these very simple styled end tables came along I decided to try this new product on them.

first I gave the tables a coat of little piggy in a messy pattern

then it was time to mix up the fresco powder and paint, I went 1:1 with newly released lichen


and used the same messy pattern application


when dry I put on a coat of casement


then sanded it down to reveal the dimension and colors
  and to give yet even more dimension and some added durability seeing they will be used more, I chose antiquing top coat and applied 2 coats


 here it is, very old world looking right?


a bit more close up


and here they are both together for their photo shoot


there are many ways to use this Fusion fresco powder, check out the website for more looks and instructions and try your hand at some old world charm
