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 Navy dresser


A good friend asked if I could do anything with her childhood dresser that was solid wood but had seen better days cosmetically. Of course I am always about saving anything I can from the landfill so had my husband pick it up for me.


Two of the drawers had damaged edges which would not be easily repaired so I converted their spaces to open shelving which I think works great for use as a entertainment console, or a change station in a nursery (so much storage) or even a dining room buffet.


I chose Fusion Mineral Paint's midnight blue, a gorgeous navy for the paint color, deep and rich and perfect for fall



once 2 coats were on it was time to decide about distressing or not, note the legs were put back on too

I posted a poll to my followers but it was a split decision so I went with distressed a wee bit, I always think of a reloved piece it adds forgiveness after that first ding ;)


I gave Staalmeester brush a try for the inner edges with great success


The original hardware was scrubbed and put back on along. The new shelves were cut to fit with braces added to the back underside for added support and 2 coats inside all around including the underside of the top for a seamless look.

To deepen the navy and add dimension I added Homestead House black furniture wax in black
