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's brushed steel nightstand


This super sleek tall nightstand called out for Fusion Mineral metallic paint in brushed steel. I saw a dresser done last year and loved it and just had to try it. Recently, Jennylyn, the creator of Fusion Mineral paint did a video on kitchen cabinets using it which was my inspiration for this project.




Just to be sure this orangy cherry color does not bleed thru I put on a grey tinted coat of primer. Fusion has a product called concealer I hope to try in the future that does this same job.

I brushed on two coats of the brushed steel metallic paint allowing to dry well between coats then did the glaze mixed with Fusion ash color.

Then as per Jennylyn's advice I sealed it all up with Fusion Mineral paint's tough coat which indeed deepened the steel look and will give the nightstand added durability. I scrubbed up the original hardware and put back on. It compliments the brushed steel and allows the nightstand to be either masculine or feminine.


the top narrow molding is the painted drawer, cute right? I think it is a great place for a diary ;)


I painted the top drawer a lighter grey


perfect not only in a bedroom but at a front door, end of a hall or in a living room used as an end table, so many uses for this reloved piece.
