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…

classic refinished coffee table in plaster and cappuccino


When a great customer offered me purchase of her mission style coffee and end table set I jumped. I love this chunky craftsman look. It did however have some water damage on the top so needed some reloving.


Orbital power sander to the rescue, a few 80-120 grit pads later it was all sanded off and ready to get a new look.


let the sanding begin and done, now for a good scrub and let dry well


I chose my favorite Homestead House's new stain and finishing oil all in one in cappuccino. This easy to use no chemical smell finish goes on so easy and leaves a lovely finish. I sand lightly with 0000 steel wool between coats to make it even smoother. I went with 3 coats of the dark brown stain and then added the natural color for additional durability. Each coat was left over night to dry well.


for the base I chose Fusion Mineral Paint in a warm white called Plaster.
Two coats lightly sanded between with a sponge sander and left to dry overnight


I like to add some depth to this creamy color so I added Homestead House espresso furniture wax . It adds character too and easy to brush on and wipe off. I also likes it adds a bit more durability to the bottom shelf surface. Time to reattach bottom shelf and hardware and haul in to stage this beauty for sale. Did I mention I have the matching end table that can be done in the same techniques and colors?
