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's Wanderess rustic style


Country Chic Paint's limited edition wanderess is a lovely green with morphing color changes depending on original base colors and top coats. I used it on a sweet photo box and it was a sage green, pretty!




However on this cherry stained coffee table it took on a more blue hue and wait until you see what dark wax changed it to.



I am pretty stoked to try my new large oval brush from Country Chic Paint



the brush worked well, here is one coat applied, being such a dark base I went with 3 coats


then it was dark wax time, don't be alarmed when you find a thin skin on your dark wax, it is a sealing barrier the natural ingredients make when left for a bit, just peel off and go 

I love the deep pigment this antiquing wax has, it gave this piece such added dimension and character


here is half with and half just wanderess color alone


and after a full clear wax coat and buff, here she is.. LOVE <3 the rustic look it has
