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.

Another White Bread Box, this one Farmhouse Style

Did you see my recent Rae Dunn inspired bread box I posted?

It was so popular when posted another customer ordered another wood bread box I had in stock to paint. She wanted it almost the same as the original but a bit more farmhouse styled.

Only 2 coats of  Fusion Mineral Paint's picket fence went on this one for a lighter coverage then hand painted BREAD in skinny font with a black paint marker just like the previous one.

This one however was lightly distressed on the edges for a more rustic look.

Here are the two versions side by side. There are just slight differences in the actual wood bread box and you can see how 2 and 3 coats of picket fence looks.

The hand painted BREAD is a wee bit different as well ;)

Top Bread Box 


  1. Like both colors of the boxes. Looks fresh and clean however I prefer the work bread on one board and not with a split. That color woould look great with any color scheme.

  2. Do you mean the break in the word bread where the bread box has a channel? I did connect the lines thru the channel on the first one and it looks odd as gave a optical illusion on crooked so repainted over ;)

    Thanks for commenting ;)
