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.

Milk Painted Kids Table Set


How adorable are little kids table and chairs sets? They are so much fun to relove for 1- you can do in fun colors, 2- they are the perfect size to try a new product on and 3 - they are so popular. This set came to me unfinished with just crayon marks needing removing.


A good sanding took the crayon off and gave the wood surface a fresh new start. I went with CeCe Caldwell paint stain and finish all in one in Beechnut Gray for the top. Four coats were applied with a fine grit sanding in between each coat.


The base was finished in two coats of milk paint for a soft water color look finish. The first coat was Miss Mustard Seed milk paint in Eulalie's sky and the second coat was Homestead House Paint Co. in Loyalist.



to get in the wee areas that show just from the top I love to use fine artist brushes


Once dry, a light sanding over all the painted areas with a sanding sponge then 2 coats of poly to seal the paint up was applied by brush. All done ready to be staged and here it is below
