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.

Old Fashioned Milk Paint rustic shelf/coatrack


Time for another edition of Old Fashioned Milk Paint rep blogging, this project used light cream to create a rustic shelf coat rack combo


this is a 3' long thick solid pine unit with great storage in 3 drawers, on the top shelf and hanging off the 4 hooks but it sure lacked any appeal, lets whip up some light cream milk paint


this little tool I scored at our local rummage sale and it works awesome!!

I put on the first coat of Old Fashioned Milk Paint on the shelf body leaving drawers to decide on color not sure if I should
1- leave wood
2- paint knobs white
3- paint a solid color or
4- paint 3 different colors


as per milk paint tendencies, it chipped where it wanted, I sanded well and put on another coat including full drawer fronts


then sanded it all well again, clear wax was used to seal with a coat of dark wax to give more dimension


and this is the finished piece
