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…

Mens valet - in dark grey

Vintage mens wooden valets are not commonly found in my treasure searches but when I find them they are always improved 100% with some paint and loving care.

Take this one for example,

I cleaned it up well and painted it in  Fusion Mineral Paint's Ash. This dark grey color is the perfect neutral not only for men but women too. Check out this gorgeous jewelry box, stunning hutch, wall art frame, as the base color of this bread box and home decor, mixed with other Fusion greys in the Restoration Hardware inspired dining table, along with quite a few more pieces I have used it on in the past. (just type ash in the search bar above)

Fusion Mineral Paint is such an easy to use paint as it is a one step paint in most cases. It has a built in top coat so unless the piece sees high traffic it does not need additional sealing steps and being highly pigmented it covers in as little as one coat, especially the darker colors. And its amazing "stickability" adheres it to almost any surface once cleaned and prepped accordingly.
And it goes on so smoothly to top it off! I have used quite a few brands and can 
say with great confidence, Fusion Mineral Paint is da bomb!

This is one coat of Ash that has been lightly distressed and  Homestead House black wax added in the crevices and edges just for added dimension and detailing. Simple yet stunning makeover giving this catch all chest years of service.

I have received product as a brand blog rep in exchange for this post, but ALL the opinions are entirely MY own.  This post contains links for Fusion Mineral Paint  &  Homestead House to help you find the items I used easily. There is no monetary compensation to me, they are just added for your convenience ;)
