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.

Fusion-ified Doll House

One of my great customers brought me her childhood doll house to give a makeover to for her two little girls for Christmas. This solid cedar doll house was hand crafted with the smallest attention to detail and so well made. 

She wanted a fun exterior update for the not so small doll house, it is 4 feet long and over 2 feet wide.

There was a bit of damage on the roof so I took  one of the braces off and reglued it and the others and brad nailed them securely in place. I secured them further with flat head screws countersunk. Then the missing areas and screw heads were wood filled. Once dried sanded well and painted Fusion Mineral Paint  little lamb, a nice soft grey..

For the house exterior she chose Fusion Mineral Paint  in English rose, this is first coat going on but took 2 coats

and for the trim she chose Fusion Mineral Paint  picket fence, a crisp white. It needed 2 coats and required an artist brush to get such small details painted.

All ready to be placed under , ok beside ;) the Christmas tree to make two little girls pretty happy Christmas morning!
