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…

Sister Jewelry Boxes in Pink & Purple


A great customer brought these 2 "matching" jewelry boxes for her sweet little girls.
One wanted pink and the other purple.


Both boxes were cleaned well for good paint adherence then all hardware and swinging doors removed. This makes all areas easily accessible to paint perfectly.




I chose Fusion Mineral Paint's English rose for the pink one. Even though the wood was light it took 3 coats to get the coverage I wanted.  A light sponge sanding smoothed all the painted areas. I then added Fusion's rose gold wax to give it some sparkle.





For the purple one, the customer chose Cottage paint in passion fruit, a deep rich purple.  Again this color required 3 coats to get the perfect color.  Again, a light sponge sand smoothed the paint. To seal it I used Fusion's pearl wax. Look at the difference it makes giving just the prettiest of shimmer to the purple color.

All hardware was put back on, the mirrors cleaned to a sparkle, the lined drawers, sides and cubbies cleaned and the doors put back on and they were complete.









And here are the adorable little girls with their "new" jewelry boxes!
