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…

Blue and Gold MCM Record Cabinet

I picked this hand crafted Mid Century Modern styled record storage cabinet from an estate sale. It is a solid all wood build with gold hardware that begged for some color.

The top had wear in the original stained finish so step one was to power sand it all smooth and clean the entire cabinet inside and out well.

I chose Fusion Mineral Paint in Liberty blue for it. I have not used this color yet and was excited to try it. I think it is the perfect rich deep blue while still being neutral. Two coats were applied and left to dry overnight. See liberty blue on a mens valet I painted right after.

Another new Fusion product is the metallic paint in pale gold. I think it will look stunning with this deep blue.
I was lucky enough to with this French Trellis Stencil from Redesign with Prima from an Instagram giveaway from House and Canvas, thank you!

and this is the result

After the stencil dried well, I sponge sanded all to smooth the surface and give the stencil a worn look.

The original hardware was cleaned and polished and put back on.

To re-hydrate and restore the wood grain luster inside, I rubbed in Fusion's hemp oil. It is easy to apply and rub in and makes the wood glow.

And this beauty is complete!

  1. Brings back memories of record cabinets! I have lots of 33's that would fill that space. A great update to an old piece ;-) Well done.
