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.

Vintage Window milk painted

Isn't this a neat sized vintage window? It even has the glass intact

Like most, they are stored in some old building collecting dirt and grime but a good scrub with TSP, soap and water get them clean again.

All dry and ready for paint, I chose milk paint as raw wood is perfect sub straight to use on and it is fitting for the era.

In honor of upcoming spring I went with Homestead House Milk Paint in upper Canada green.

I also used it on this antique table too

I applied 2 coats on the "front" side, sanded it smooth and added Homestead House espresso furniture wax to age it further

On the back side I did the same thing with Homestead House Milk Paint in Quaker blue

This gives the piece flexibility. I love these windows for dry erase boards, as shown above, photo frames or just pretty home decor additions. Watch how easy  using as dry erase is below.
