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.

Milk Painted Farmhouse Solid Oak Stools




I purchased these tall solid oak stools thinking they would be perfect in a white with dark wax.


So for coat number one I mixed up Homestead House Milk Paint in limestone and brushed it on.


The next day when dry I was just not feeling the white, the stools called for a fun color.
Homestead House Milk Paint in Laurentien was the color of choice.


It looked perfect, vintage farmhouse stool color for sure.


And of course in typical milk paint style, one stool is more green and one more blue :)


To seal the milk paint I went with Miss Mustard Seed hemp oil , it goes on so easy with a brush. Let soak in and wipe off. I then added Fusion Mineral Paint ageing and espresso waxes on the top and all the crevices to keep the farmhouse aged look.



they work great as a plant stand too ;)
