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 Azure Jewel Box

Years ago a good friend gave me this sweet little box that originally had tea in it, I have used it for my bracelets as it is black velvet lined and divided, perfect. But it is not the perfect color. Finally I took some time for myself and pulled out one of my favorite Fusion Mineral Paint colors, azure.

I like simple classic styles but wanted to add just a little something to it, like a small raised design. Fusion Mineral Paint has some beautiful stencils and easy to use embossing paste.

I went with just a portion of this stencil to apply on the front side.

Just lay the stencil over spot you want and using pallet knife apply a thin layer of the embossing paste, lift and let dry.. at least 12 hours!! Yep I touched before and instantly remembered patience is the key ;)

I then gave it 2 coats of azure (working on another project behind with azure and 2 more of my favorite Fusion Mineral Paint blues) and let dry.

and to make the stencil pop just a bit I hand painted with an artist brush some Fusion Mineral Paint metallic in silver.

absolutely perfect!!
