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.

Mission Style End Table with Fusion's Plaster & Cappuccino Stain

I refinished the matching mission style coffee table awhile back and just had the matching end table stored in the stock to paint area.  Needing to make room as well as get the set ready to sell together I pulled out the end table and finally finished it,

I did the same steps with this table too EXCEPT the top. The end table top is in great condition so I only light sanded it and then applied  Homestead House's new stain and finishing oil all in one in cappuccino mixed with ebony. This easy to use no chemical smell finish goes on so easy and leaves a lovely finish. Each coat was left over night to dry well with only 2 coats needing to be applied.

The base was done exactly the same, Fusion Mineral Paint in a warm white called Plaster was applied in two coats lightly sanded between with a sponge sander.

first coat on

Once dry and sponge sand distressed on the edges, I added Homestead House espresso furniture 
wax .  This set is now back to matching and updated for a classic farm house look.

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 sponsored links for Fusion Mineral Paint & Homestead House Paint Co.
