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 little lamb & black waxed dining chairs makeover

then Homestead's black wax and distressing on the right side with solid on left, the customer liked the rustic look so it was a go ahead to carry on





all 4 chairs had 2 coats of little lamb grey and black wax detailing after hand sanding to distress



then for added durability I put a clear coat of Homestead furniture wax on the seats and backs of each chair
