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…

Up-cycled TV Tray Holder



I was not sure what to do with this TV tray holder when it came into my possession but seeing it was solid wood I knew it could be reused for parts at the very least. When I saw Larissa from Prodigal Pieces up-cycle 2 and I have an upcoming market, the light bulb went off.


So to add a fun color, I used Krylon spray paint in chalky finish color tidal blue.
Apply multiple light coats on all sides then seal with the Krylon's chalky finish clear coat spray.


I wanted to add a removable chalkboard on mine to test first before permanently attaching.

I had a piece of hardboard backing that will work so sprayed it with Krylon Chalkboard Spray Paint Black. This was much easier then the roll on kind and time will tell if it is as durable.


Seeing the back of the chalkboard would be visible, I painted it in Krylon citrus green for a fun punch of color.


After allowing the chalkboard paint a few days to dry and cure, it was time to try it out. I typed out my wording and set the fonts then free handed it onto the board.


This is going to be perfect for my upcoming market as a welcome sign
