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.


The top has a leather inset which covered easily with this paint. And this beauty has caster…

Fusion pebble & soapstone round accent table


 There is a earth element color line in Fusion Mineral paint's Michael Penny collection; pebble and soap stone. I chose these 2 colors to relove a French provincial round accent table.


This wood table had a fairly smooth surface so just to be sure my paint would adhere well I lightly sanded over the surfaces. A good scrub made sure all sanding particles and any past "dirt" was removed again giving a great surface to apply paint over.

I started with the inside. The original mesh was sprayed flat black.


 Soapstone covered all the walls and floor to not only add contrast but to give a fresh new coat for future storage.


  I then put two coats of Fusion Mineral paint  pebble over the outside.



Once fully dry overnight I added a soapstone wash over the pebble. To do this I mixed it about 50/50 with water, brushed over the pebble and wiped back with a damp rag. This was perfect to catch in the detailed nooks and crannies and give added definition and dimension to the curvy piece.


A light sanding with a sanding pad distressed the edges a bit as well. And to give the top and inside floor additional protection I applied two coats of Fusion's tough coat.

To finish the piece, I sprayed the hardware the same flat black as the mesh.


perfect as a nightstand
