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 Algonquin shelf / key rack


I painted 2 exact shelves with key racks; one warm white, one a burnt orange. The warm white one sold right away but the burnt orange one remained unsaleable for over a year. As much as I hate admitting the color choice was wrong, sometimes it is true.


So I tried Fusion Mineral Paint's in Algonquin, a new to me color to try. Distressed it a bit and added  Homestead House espresso wax  for a rustic feel. I have my fingers crossed this color is more appealing to the masses ;)
