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's newest release ~ English Rose


I love new color reveals and Michael Penney's latest addition to his line of FMP is a beauty. Soft pale pink called English Rose.


I recently purchased a solid wood MCM dresser, well made with dove tail joints but it had the hi gloss finish. To be sure my paint had the best adherence I started with a good coat of Fusion Mineral Paint's ultra grip using their micro roller. Super easy application now to leave to dry minimum 12 hours.



The hi gloss finish was dark and wanting to save paint I once again coated the entire dresser and drawers with Fusion Mineral Paint concealer using the micro roller. This is a reclaimed product they make that gives a brighter base under your lighter paint colors.


Now the fun part, adding color; I used the micro roller yet again and put on 3 coats of English rose.


 In the front edges I used the Staalmeester sash brush. It worked very well for these tight hard to get at areas.


The legs did not have the concealer, you can see one coat on the right and two on the left, I ended up putting 4 coats on the legs


I always am excited to see the drawers back in and hardware on but it was left to dry over night then hauled in, the legs put back on and here it is








This solid walnut Canadian made MCM dresser has been revived in a soft pale pink which enhances the original gold hardware, drawer details and leg caps. The 4 solid wood dovetailed drawers provide ample storage and slide smoothly. The sweet curvy legs and sweeping curved front design and curved top drawer front add elegance.  It measures 36"L X 18"D X 40 1/2"H. This gorgeous hand painted dresser is the perfect statement piece in your Princess's room. Message me if your looking
