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…

Homestead House All in One finish Sideboard


I have had my sideboard sitting in our home in full use for about 4 years now with the intention of refinishing it however like the cobbler's children with no shoes, it gets overlooked all the time. I recently made time for it deciding it needed a good drink of oil as the previously stripped left the surface so dry.


so dry ;( lets give this old girl a drink


It soaked up two coats of Miss Mustard Seed hemp oil like nothing when I applied it after sanding and scrubbing well.



here is the drawer above with hemp oil showing the difference of the dry old wood



now it was time to sand down the top even though it has previously been stripped to get all marks removed and a fresh start. Everything received 2 coats of hemp oil hydration, inside and out all sides





To darken the wood, I chose Homestead House's new stain and finishing oil all in one in cappuccino. I wipe on with a paper towel, leave for about 15 minutes then use another paper towel to remove the excess. Be sure to wait at least 9 hours between coats or the dark color will wipe off easier - ask me how I know :)

the products are so low VOC you can use right in your home

I went with 2 coats of the dark stain but the finish was dull and not quite even being so dry. Homestead House has a new color called natural in the line so I applied 4 more coats of it which resulted in a lovely shine and gave added durability especially to the top that gets lots of use.
