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…

A good customer of mine gifted me this large wood window frame sans glass (29X40). I knew it would make the prefect rustic chalkboard.

After a good scrub to get rid of years of dirt and grime accumulated during storage,  I went with Old Fashioned Milk Paint in oyster white painting all sides in two coats.

I dry brushed on a dark grey, a light grey and taupe then power sanded all sides well to smooth any raised wood, paint and rough spots.

To seal the milk paint I rubbed on Daddy Vans lavender scented clear wax, dry brushed some more OFMP in oyster white then sealed everything with Daddy Vans clear wax again topped with cafe noir, a gorgeous dark wax.

To create the chalkboard center, I cut a piece of hardboard to fit, painted it in 3 coats of Rustoleum black chalkboard paint, sanding between coats.
