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.

Fusion chocolate "matching" nightstands


Who wants some more chocolate? I do! And who says night stands have to be exact to match? I don't! I took these very similar wood nightstands and turned them into his & hers matching nightstands, follow along to see how simple it was.


I found almost identical nightstand but not quite, removed the old hardware, scrubbed well, filled the hardware holes and painted 2 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint chocolate on them


I find nightstands get lots of wear on top with glasses of water being the worst culprit so I put 2 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint tough coat wipe on poly to add additional durability. New hardware was added to complete the "matching" process. Same color, same hardware... Now they are the perfect his and hers nightstands, agree?
