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 Frames

Frames are such a fun way to add color in a room. Here are some I did using Fusion Mineral Paint 

First 2 up are done in English Rose, a soft pink

The ornate vintage wood frame had 2 coats of English rose then a coat of custom mixed rose gold and to bring out the ornate details, Fusion's ageing wax was wiped over all.

Chicken wire was added in the center making it perfect for photos, sunglasses, jewelry etc.

The wider solid oak frame was distressed then white washed with Fusion's liming wax for a soft pretty look. Wide grosgrain ribbon was hot waxed and power stapled in the frame to great a sweet barrette display frame.

This wide solid oak frame was painted in Fusions little tea pot. This is such a pretty aqua color.

To bring out the ridged details and give it a fun aged look, I added Fusion's ageing wax

The aged aqua finish is so lovely

On this solid wood frame, I applied Homestead House Milk Paint in Quaker blue layering on Inglenook and homestead blue and topping off with Fusion's espresso wax.

Magnetic wire mesh was added to this one

Fusion's brushed steel for the win on this pretty frame

And on this artist frame, the outside frame was painted a soft grey and the inner textured frame was painted Fusion picket fence, a bright white

A fun font was used to create a room sign to add to the center, perfect gift for my sweet God Daughter.
