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…

Fun Fusion Azure Chair


This solid wood chair in its classic square structure was calling for something fun to give it some pizzaz. Fusion Mineral Paint's beautiful color called azure fit this bill. First step was to power sand the chair to smooth the aging shellac finish and drip areas. note- Whatever shows unpainted will show even more when painted. Once sanded it was given a good cleaning and left to dry.


Fusion Mineral Paint goes on so smoothly especially when using a good synthetic brush. I distressed the edges between and after the second coat. Minimal distressing gives furniture a wee bit of forgiveness when the legs and edges get banged during use. I also sanded with a sanding sponge between coats and after too to just smooth the all in one paint to a satiny smooth feel.
